Since early 2019, Pack Your Back has been hosting water distributions at the Prince of Peace Missionary Baptist Church in Flint, Michigan. Nearly 3,375 families have been able to receive access to clean water due to these water distributions.
On August 3rd, Pack Your Back added another resource to the water distributions to make it easier for the residents that have been affected by the ongoing water crisis. Over 250 backpacks filled with school supplies were distributed to students who attended the distribution to allow them to go back to school prepared. As we all know, education is the key to success and if a student doesn’t have the resources needed to be successful, they can’t be.
“We want to make getting access to school supplies as easy as possible.” - Galen Miller, Executive Director of Pack Your Back
