As the school year approaches, parents are helping their children prepare for classes while trying to purchase all necessary supplies. However, unfortunately, many schools and families cannot afford these school supplies due to difficult financial situations.
ICNA Relief has stepped up to the challenge – Since 2009, throughout the months from July to September, the organization and its many divisions/branches have worked together to launch the Back-2-School Giveaway Program, where school backpacks filled with basic school supplies were given to children residing in low-income areas. The giveaway events took place in over 26 states so far, and over 100,000 school bags have been distributed since its initiation.
We believe in the motto, “Education is Power”, it’s the passport for success and the lack of it is linked to many of the problems resting in our communities today.
