Feed the Children distributed its 1 millionth H.E.L.P. (Homeless Education and Literacy Program) backpack with community-partner support. H.E.L.P. promotes school attendance and completion across the nation.
“We want to make it easy for kids to stay in school,” Feed the Children Director of Education Partnerships Erin Carlstrom said. “For some homeless or at-risk children, these backpacks are the first thing they’re given that’s theirs.”
