Back to School Program

In 2023, CAM distributed 624 backpacks filled with school supplies and love! The children also received 2 sets of uniforms, socks and underwear to get them ready for the new school year. We’d like to thank everyone who had a hand in purchasing and donating backpacks, school supplies, and so much more. This program wouldn’t be possible without all of you wonderful supporters. We’re very much looking forward to what we can do in 2024!

Every year, CAM organizes, coordinates and hosts the Back-to-School Program; a donation drive benefiting so many students. Most people aren’t aware, but thousands of children start each school year without the proper supplies needed and required by the school districts.

CAM’s program allows for individuals, dedicated donors, organizations, corporate companies, etc. to “adopt-a-child”, meaning they retrieve that child’s school supply list for the upcoming year and purchase the items on the list, and place everything in a brand new backpack for the child. CAM staff and volunteers coordinate this effort and work with the donor to ensure the process is as seamless and easy as possible for the donor.
