Summer At The Backpack Place

When you work with a school district, you might think that summer is a time to relax. Since there are no kiddos around, it must be time to sit around the pool and work on our tans, or maybe take a nice vacation. Well, not this summer! Some pretty great things have been happening the past couple of months!

First, the Round Rock Leadership Class is planning a HUGE fundraiser for us. The Hunger Games will be held on September 21st, and you can find more information about it by clicking on the link on our home page.

As part of the fundraiser, we will be launching a Friends of The Backpack Coalition program. We are still working on the details, but we will let you know as soon as we can.

Next, we are doing some remodeling at our portable on the Round Rock High School campus. We are re-arranging the layout for better flow, and new flooring goes in later this month! Thanks to all of the volunteers who have helped us move items and pull up the old carpeting. We appreciate you more than you can ever know.

Next (and ongoing), we are constantly updating the website. Our goal is to make it easy for our friends to find the information we need.

Finally, we are launching our monthly newsletter as we enter the new school year. If you are interested joining our e-mail list, you can sign up on our home page.

Have a great rest of your summer!
