Each year over 3,000 LISD elementary students start school without a backpack or basic school supplies. Let's help these students kick the school year off right! LISD, For the Children, Cedar Park and Leander Chambers of Commerce, HCBC Leander and HCBC Austin are partnering to provide backpacks with basic school supplies for students who are a part of the free and reduced lunch program. Each backpack filled with supplies costs $6 which normally retails for approximately $35.

Here are two ways you can get involved!

Every $6 pays for a backpack filled with basic supplies ($35 value)
