Please encourage any high school seniors you know and who meet the above requirements to apply and share this information widely with friends and family. If you have any questions, please (email@example.com). Thank you for your interest.
Chi Am members fill backpacks and distribute them to school children in need at the beginning of every school year.
These schools are chosen because they are located in underserved areas. Most of the selected school's students are from families that qualify for some kind of assistance. Most of them are eligible for free or subsidized school lunch programs and are considered low income.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing guidelines, we will not assemble backpacks with school supplies as in the past. However, returning students will need our help now more than ever. Please consider donating funds to purchase paper, notebooks, pens, backpacks by clicking DONATE below.
