School Supplies Giveaway

Every August, students receive a new backpack filled with school supplies to make sure they are prepared for the new school year. The goal is to equip the students so that they can perform optimally in school and to minimize the financial stress that the new school year places on families. 

On August 5, 2015, Lend a Hand Bahamas distributed 30 new backpacks fully loaded with school supplies following an annual community fishing trip. The goal is to have this special school supplies giveaway every year, and grow its reach and impact by partnering with new individuals, corporations, and other nonprofits.

– New Backpack (1)

– Package of loose leaf paper (1)
