Support the 2017 Give BACKpacks Campaign

MCPS needs your help to raise funds to purchase backpacks filled with school supplies for students in need. A $10 donation will provide a student in need with a new backpack, filled with school supplies. Last year, thanks to the generous donations of MCPS parents, staff, and community members, the district was able to provide nearly 18,000 backpacks to students. We’re hoping to serve even more students this year. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to Give BACKpacks!
