Backpacks for Students in Need

Washburn Academy Teens Stuff Backpacks with Supplies for Students in Need

Some Clearwater teens are making sure their fellow students have everything they need to succeed this school year.

Students at Washburn Academy stuffed 750 backpacks with all sorts of classroom essentials, and then stuffed them in a van.

Washburn Academy teaches kids to help anybody and everybody. Their curriculum includes social betterment programs, which spark events like this one — benefiting both the backpack recipients and the teens preparing them.
