BACKPACKS 4 KIDS AZ AT A GLANCE
A Bit of Background
Kaitlyn started Backpacks 4 Kids AZ when she was 11 years old and one of her friends didn’t have any school supplies so Kaitlyn and her mom got her school supplies and that lead Kaitlyn and her mom Michelle to have a conversation about kids not having school supplies. That led to a school supply drive at her school. They were able to give everyone school supplies that needed them and it turned into an organization that gives an average of 3,500 back packs with school supplies and Love Bundles (bags for kids entering foster homes, shelters or who are homeless.)
