Success in a Backpack

Welcome to our “Success in a Backpack” Program

It's hard to imagine that, right here, in our community, a child will start school without the necessary school supplies they will need in order to thrive. In the coming months, Volunteers of America Southwest will be distributing over 300 backpacks filled with essential school supplies through our Palomar Apartments Affordable Family Housing in Chula Vista, Ballington Academy in El Centro, and School Readiness Project in Rialto. Your contribution of just $22 will purchase a backpack filled with school supplies- helping a child begin their school year with the essentials they need in class and to complete their homework. Because, as we all know, a successful future starts with a good education.

Thank you for creating success in a backpack with your support.
