Sizzling Summer Kick Off Party
Youth Villages started summer off HOT! On June 13, the Youth Villages Leadership Council held a Summer Kick Off Event to benefit our Backpack Heroes campaign.
Guests were smarter than a fifth grader as they answered hard hitting trivia questions and got competitive in miniature basketball. They spent the evening making meaningful cards for our school-aged youth, competing in school themed activities, networking and becoming Backpack Heroes! One lucky winner took home the grand prize by guessing the correct number of pencils in the pencil jar.
You can become a Backpack Hero and sponsor a youth by supplying their school supply needs, purchasing individual supplies from our Amazon wish list or making a monetary donation.
Every young person deserves the tools they need to succeed. If you are interested in contributing, please visit www.youthvillages.org/backpacks.
