2019 Backpack Drive for the YWCA of Northeastern Massachusetts





TMC Cares is once again holding our annual Backpack Drive for the YWCA of Northeastern Massachusetts! This program serves over 300 school-age children between the ages of 6 and 15 in the Lawrence and Haverhill communities to help children start the school year off right.  Most are from low-income families, where the cost of backpacks and school supplies is truly a hardship.  


We need your help to meet (or pass!) our goal of 30 backpacks filled with supplies to donate. This is a great opportunity to get your children involved in doing something positive for other kids - whether it is having them help you pick out the supplies or joining us to help fill the packs. The backpacks are the most significant item so please help us fulfill this need first.
