New backpacks and school supplies can bring a glimmer of hope to a needy child. We want to bring a smile to their face, provide them with some useful items, and remind them that someone cares for them.
For kids living in poverty, something as simple as not having pencils and paper can prevent them from being able to attend school. The phrase often used for this is "lack of resources". Hope Paks are helping to provide those basic necessities.
We know a backpack cannot solve the deep and cyclical devastation of poverty, but one small gift like this can be a glimmer of hope.
