Back-to-School Backpack Drive


AHEPA Chicago Lakeshore Chapter 205 is once again teaming up Focus to deliver backpacks full of school supplies to children throughout the Chicagoland area. Each child will receive a backpack that is filled with all the necessary school supplies; pencils, binders, markers, notebooks, folders, rulers, crayons, erasers, glue, and more! Backpacks are $35 per person.

To limit contact during the pandemic, this year we are solely collecting monetary donations from those interested in participating. Deadline to donate funds is August 22nd. Let’s help get children off to a great start this school year. 

Please note that AHEPA 205 is a 501(c)(10) non-profit and your donation is tax deductible pursuant to Section 170(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code for charitable purposes.
