Back to School Program

14th Annual “Back to School” Event!

Backpack 2016 
The Angels Over Sandpoint held the 14th annual “Back to School” event providing back packs and school supplies to children in Bonner County at Farmin Stidwell on August 31, 2016.

Many parents cannot afford to purchase all of the necessary school supplies each year, especially when they have more than one child in the home. Over 2,000 students in Bonner County participate in the free and reduced lunch program — these are the students that the Angels aim to help.

This year our goal was for at least 1,000 children to participate and receive school supplies and backpacks — at a cost of about $30,000. Community support is vital in reaching this goal. We operate this program with volunteers and with all of the donations our group receives going directly to bringing supplies to students in Bonner County.

We work with the Community Action Partnership to register families to participate in this critical program. Supplies must be purchased soon to prepare for distribution at the end of August. You can make a donation to this program by going to our donation page here on our website or by sending your check to:
