Start the 2019-2020 school year right by lending a helping hand to children in the Metrowest area.

This is the eighth consecutive year of the Build-a-Backpack event, where the goal is to give away 350 backpacks full of school supplies to families in our community who need it most. Every year, JFS collects school supplies for children ages 5-10 through corporate donations and local supply drives.

Volunteers (often families with young children) are asked to bring new backpacks to the event, where they stuff them full of school supplies, choosing who the backpack will go to. Then JFS distributes the filled backpacks to the Woodrow Wilson Elementary School in Framingham, as well as the parent information center for the Framingham Public Schools.

Build-a-Backpack brings families together and gives kids the chance to learn how they can help support their community. The backpack events are part of JFS’s Reducing Achievement Gaps initiative, a comprehensive system of interventions to address the academic and social needs of low-income children of immigrant families in Framingham.
