5th Annual Segundo Barrio & Boy’s and Girl’s Club BackPack Drive.

June 24, 2019
5th Annual Segundo Barrio & Boy’s and Girl’s Club BackPack Drive.
The BackPack drive is organized by The Central Business Association (CBA) in conjunction with Downtown El Paso’s historic Sacred Heart Church, the Downtown Management District (DMD) and Emajj Public Relations & Marketing. 

We envision every child having the best learning opportunities possible, beginning with the tools they need to succeed in the classroom. This vision can be hampered for many families by already stretched budgets. The Segundo Barrio Backpack and School Supply Drive will provide students in the community with the supplies they need to succeed this school year.

Last year over 1078 backpacks filled with school supplies were presented to local children in need. This year’s goal is to surpass that number!

Bring any supplies you would like to donate to any FirstLight branch no later than July 29th. 

Below is a list of supplies needed:  
  • Backpack
  • Pencils 
  • Pens (black ink) 
  • Notebooks (spiral, wide-ruled) 
  • Folders (2 pocket, clasps) 
  • Color pencils
