|How does the Program work?||Why We Do This|
|Greater Spirit Ministries collects donated new backpacks and school supplies for children in the most need in the community. Backpacks filled with grade-appropriate school supplies are distributed to children through our partnering churches, human services organizations, at-risk youth centers, homeless shelters and foster care organizations.|
We collect new backpacks, school supplies and monetary donations through drives hosted by individuals, organizations and businesses as well as through the Fill A Pack Community Challenges.
The Fill A Pack program ensures underprivileged children get to start the first day of school feeling confident and prepared to succeed academically.
|Children living in poverty face many challenges and tremendous stigmatization. Showing up on the first day of school without the proper tools can make a child look and feel different from their classmates which can be both embarrassing and stressful.|
By providing children in need with brand new backpacks filled with grade-appropriate school supplies, A Precious Child ensures that children in need can show up to school ready to start the new school year on the same level as their peers and excited to learn.
