As a part of our Kenzi’s Kidz program, we began providing backpacks and school supplies for the children who were a part of, or alumni of, the program. As the number of children in the program has grown, so has the number of backpacks and school supplies that we need for them.
Packz4Kidz has grown and not only serves families in our Kenzi’s Kidz program but serves any family in need of new school supplies. As a former teacher for Denver Public Schools, I saw first hand children arriving on the first day of school without the necessary supplies to be successful and feel like everyone else. It is our goal this year to provide 1,000 low income children with new backpacks full of school supplies to ensure they start the first day of school with the confidence and supplies they need to be successful.
