Pack Your Back is proud to be in Detroit, Michigan this year for a school supply distribution. After providing school supplies to over 500 students in Flint, Michigan, we are ready to do it again. Our 2017 Detroit distribution will take place at the Detroit Public Library – Main Branch on August 12th from 1:00-5:00pm. We are proud to partner with the March for Public Education and the Detroit Public Library to make this distribution possible.
Little Miss Flint
Pack Your Back would like to thank Mari Copeny, also known as "Little Miss Flint” for assisting our organization in raising funds to purchase over 1,000 for students in Flint, Michigan. "We need to help kids in Flint that can't afford a backpack or school supplies so the people can go to school," she said. "School is important. Education is life.” - Mari Copeny
