Our annual Back-to-School Backpack Campaign kicks off July 1 and runs through July 23!

(Claremont, California—June 14, 2023)

Help kids look forward to the back-to-school season with dignity and joy.

Visit the following businesses during the month of July and pick up a backpack to fill for a child in need:

  • Aromatique Skin and Body Care in Claremont
  • Some Crust Bakery in Claremont
  • Claremont Forum Bookshop
  • Claremont Concerts in the Park with the Claremont Kiwanis
  • MPower Yoga in Claremont

Filled backpacks should include a brand new pair of sneakers and socks (each backpack will have a tag attached to it with the shoe information for the child in need).

Backpacks should be returned to the business where you picked it up no later than July 23.

A huge thanks to all the businesses and employees participating in this year's backpack campaign for kids in need:
