Backpacks for Bright Futures

Rotary Club of Carroll Creek

Education is the foundation of a child’s future success in life – it can be the largest barrier to getting out of poverty.

That is why the Coalition is partnering with the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek to raise funds to supply students attending Frederick City Feeder Schools with backpacks for the 2023 -2024 academic year.  You can help us ensure Bright Futures to students in our community.

We are seeking a total of $16,000 to purchase backpacks for students attending schools in Frederick City. To date we have raised $8,000 towards our goal – We are seeking $8,000 to close the gap!

A gift of $30.00 will purchase 4 backpacks.
A gift of $75.00 will purchase 10 backpacks.
A gift of $150.00 will purchase 20 backpacks.
