UWA and school teachers agree- every student deserves to have a backpack of their own when entering school for the new year and to not be worried about how they will carry their supplies back and forth to school. In a population of students who often feel “less than” among their peers, something as simple as a new backpack can make an enormous difference in their attitude and perspective towards the school year.
If you know someone who might need a new backpack for the 2016-2017 school year, please ask them to contact our office.
