Backpacks for Bookworms
Backpacks for Bookworms -
The 2024 official drop off/ collection date begins May 1 and runs thru July 10!
Backpacks for Bookworms is a third party event hosted by Parent Petroleum to benefit CASA Kane County which serves child victims of abuse and neglect who are placed into the foster care system. Foster children frequently enter a new school year with a different perspective than other children and do not have new backpacks and school supplies.
When they are moved between families and foster homes these children could have to change schools multiple times a year. Not returning to school with new items as the rest of their peers can make them feel shameful, confused, and embarrassed – yet another reminder of how little they have.
