Backpack Buddies

Be a Buddy—Support Legacy Connection’s Backpack Buddies Program!

Every year, thousands of kids arrive at Arizona schools lacking the most basic essentials for home, health, and school. Legacy Connection’s Backpack Buddies, in collaboration with Back to School Clothing Drive Association (BTSCDA), Assistance League of Phoenix and Assistance League of East Valley Operation School Bell® programs, and corporate and community sponsors, equip more than 15,000 elementary schoolchildren from low-income families in Greater Phoenix and the Tri-State region with clothing, back-to-school supplies, and health and hygiene staples. Thousands more are on the waiting list. One hundred percent of contributions and sponsorship funds go to support the cost of clothing, shoes, backpacks, and backpack contents.


With your help, more kids will return to school this year with new clothes and supplies, feeling good about themselves.
