Back To School - Backpack School Supplies Drive
Time & Location
About the Event
Please make your donation by July 15, 2021 - $40 donation will buy one backpack filled with supplies.
Each year the BHWC collects and distributes school supplies to 80 children at the Westwood Transitional Housing Village at the Bessie Pregerson Center of the Salvation Army.
The Transitional Housing Village is a housing complex and pre-school located in West Los Angeles; its mission is to reunite homeless families into their own residence, rehabilitate and find work for the parents - all while allowing the children to maintain a normal life and attend local schools. By providing these backpacks, the children can start school on a level playing field and focus on their education. Your tax-deductible donation will go to bulk-purchase the needed supplies to fill the backpacks.
