The Backpack Project

Recognizing a need to support the local students and families, The Patchwork Foundation began the Back to School Backpack Giveaway in August 2014.  Along with the support of local businesses such as Staples, Hair by Julia, and the congregations of the Kinsman United Methodist Church and the Gustavus Federated Church, over 1300 filled backpacks, haircuts, and meals have been given away.
