How Can I Help?

By supplying backpacks filled with school supplies, A Friend in Need is giving local students the tools they need for success. 

 Working directly with shelters and low-income schools, we deliver backpacks filled with school supplies to children who otherwise have nothing, and encourage them to stay in school and succeed.
