Fill a Backpack Fulfill a Dream!

We are launching our Pack-A-Back 2015 Education Campaign and need your help to reach our goal of filling 3,000 new backpacks for students in grades K-12! Just before school starts, Sacred Heart provides new backpacks filled with school supplies to low-income students. This program is fully funded and stocked by people just like you! 3,000 kids are depending on you to make a generous contribution and provide everything needed to start the school year off right. Thank YOU for showing children that this community cares about their future!
