Last year this drive helped provide 537 backpacks that were filled with the school supplies that were needed for children in the Acadiana area. The 537 backpacks were distributed to homeless children in 5 parishes in Acadia Parish, Iberia Parish, Lafayette Parish, St. Martin Parish, and Vermilion Parish.

Pack the Backpack is happening from July 1- August 4, 2022.
