Beyond Housing Back Pack Give Away

June 23, 2023

Every year since 2015, in early August, we join forces with Beyond Housing and other local organizations for a special project that makes a big impact. Our goal? To ensure that students returning to the Normandy School District are equipped with the tools they need for success.

Imagine the excitement and anticipation as nearly 2,000 backpacks, brimming with school supplies, are purchased, sorted, and ready to be distributed. This initiative is more than just a back-to-school event; it's an opportunity to empower and support the future leaders of our community.

On the day of the give-away, more than 30 volunteers work tirelessly to ensure that each backpack finds its way into the hands of deserving students from kindergarten through 12th grade. Their commitment to the cause is truly inspiring, and their efforts make a significant difference in the lives of these young learners.

Education is the key to a brighter future, and at VP Saint Louis, we believe that every child deserves equal access to quality resources. By providing essential school supplies, we aim to alleviate the financial burden on families and create an environment where students can thrive academically.

We take great pride in our annual partnership with Beyond Housing and other like-minded organizations, as it allows us to pool our resources and expertise to make a lasting impact. Together, we are building a stronger, more resilient community, one backpack at a time.
