Backing our Future Backpack Campaign

This backpack drive helps underserved elementary school children in our community. Thanks to the generous donations from corporate and individual supporters and AUHS faculty and staff, AUHS Foundation is able to purchase backpacks and fill them with school supplies for students at Lafayette Elementary School, Bobbi Smith Elementary School, Signal Hill Elementary School and Lutheran Social Services of Southern California’s lunch program participants.  With the help of volunteer students, we sort, pack and deliver the backpacks into the hands of eager and grateful students and school counselors who work hard every day to try to meet the needs of their low-income students. With these backpacks, AUHS Foundation is giving disadvantaged youths the tools they need to succeed at learning.
