Being involved in changing a young person's life can be transformational. You are part of the solution.
Bridge’s Operation Backpack supplies runaway, homeless and high-risk youth with backpacks containing items essential for survival. Our goal is to collect medium to large backpacks filled with items such as travel sized toiletries, gloves, mittens, hats, scarves, and socks, seasonal clothing and gift cards. You can find these items and more on Bridge’s Amazon Wish List.
Individuals or companies with questions or interest in organizing a backpack drive may contact June Mattioli, Director of Development,
at 617-423-9575, ext. 228, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
