An event happening at schools across the area Friday aims to help children in Cameroon, Africa, through the organization A Place of Hope, and give local students perspective on a day in the life of students around the world who don't have access to school supplies.
No Backpack Day was started by a student at Blythe Elementary School who was so inspired by her mother's work for the organization, which helps students affected by HIV/AIDS in Cameroon, she decided to get her entire school involved.
In February, over 650 students participated in No Backpack Day by carrying, or using plastic bags to carry, their supplies to school. The students were also able to gather 3,700 school supplies to donate to students in Cameroon through A Place for Hope.
Between Tuesday, November 13, and Monday, November 19, anyone can donate items to Mountain Island Elementary School to send to A Place of Hope and the children of Cameroon. Backpacks, pencils, erasers, handheld pencil sharpeners, crayons, and notebooks are all needed.
In addition, the students ask you to send your child to school without their backpack on Friday.
