15th Annual Backpack Giveaway Celebration

In partnership with the Mama Akua Community House, we are hosting the 15th annual backpack giveaway in August 2021. While we traditionally host a neighborhood festival as part of the giveaway, Covid-19 has inspired us to take a different approach this year.


This year, we are hosting an outdoor Youth Day on July 31, 2021, where we will have fun activities including a storyteller, and an exotic zoo!


The Backpack Giveaway has options for Detroit families to either register to pick up backpacks on August 7th, 2021, or have backpacks delivered on August 14th, 2021.  Backpacks are currently for Detroit students only and priority will be given to our low-income families.


You can register for each event by going to:
