2016 Backpack Drive

2016 Backpack Drive

Did you know:

  • 35% of Native American children live below poverty level.

  • Up to 70% of Native children drop out of high school (varies by reservation).

  • Only 13% of Native students attain a college degree.

Are all these things related? Of course! But, you can help.

Donate a backpack to a student

It may not seem like a big deal to many adults, but to a student, the first day of school is a big deal and so is starting off the year without the school supplies you need.

The 2016 Backpack Drive will provide school supplies such as backpacks, pencils and binders to Native American children, ensuring they have the materials they need to succeed. PWNA and AIEF need to deliver school supplies to 26,000 Native American students on the reservations this year. Will you show these children that you care by making a donation today?

Help us spread the word on Facebook and Twitter. The more you share, the more children you help!
