Back-to-School Backpack Drive


AHEPA Chicago Lakeshore Chapter 205 is once again teaming up with 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 student.

Those interested in supporting the backpack drive can make  monetary donations today! Members of Chapter 205 will purchase all the necessary supplies, and then assemble and deliver all the backpacks, to ensure that each student get the same completed backpack.   Deadline to donate is August 22nd. Let’s help get children off to a great start this school year.

AHEPA Chapter 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.
