Threads for Teens will be hosting a backpack drive to help on August 27th, 2011. At this event, seventy-five girls will be given backpacks filled with school supplies that might not have been able to afford them otherwise. There are two ways that you can help.
- Sponsor a backpack filled with supplies by donating $20. For $20, Threads for Teens will fill a backpack with your donation.
- Fill a backpack with school supplies and donate it directly to Threads for Teens. Here is the list of supplies that will be needed in each backpack:
One red pen
One pack of blue or black pens
