Centennial Community Backpack Program

Did you know that more than 1 out of every 6 students in Centennial Schools qualify for free- or reduced lunch?

It's true.  Poverty is everywhere, and it hits school children the hardest.  Many kids aren't ready for school, so learning is an extra challenge.  They don't have access to quality supplies to help them be successful in a 21st century classroom.

With your help, we can make sure that every student starts school with all the right gear.

Our organization facilitates distribution of school supplies purchased by generous community members for elementary, middle, and high school students in the Centennial District in the northern Twin Cities suburbs of Blaine, Circle Pines, Lexington, Centerville, and Lino Lakes.

How can you help?

Does your family need help with school supplies?

Contact your child's school office BEFORE JUNE 1st and ask how to apply for a backpack for the following fall.
