Empowering the youth starts in the classroom.
Some families cannot afford to pay for a backpack and the proper school supplies their children need. By giving them the backpack and school supplies they need we are able to help those children succeed beyond expectations. We want every child we give a backpack to have a fair chance to succeed like every other student in their classroom.
2019 BACKPACK GIVEAWAY: 300
This year we were able to partner with Athens Neighborhood Health Center and be a part of their Neighborhood Appreciation Event. The great thing about this event is that it allowed the entire community to come together and have a good time. Dreams To Kings and Queens was grateful to be a part of this.
2018 BACKPACKS GIVEN AWAY: 275
In 2018, we were able to give out backpacks to children at East Athens Summer Camp and Lay Park Summer Camp. It was important to us that every kid went home with a backpack & school supplies on the last day of camp. We want to thank everyone that helped us out with accomplishing this!
2017 BACKPACKS GIVEN AWAY: 250
In 2017, we were able to increase our number of backpacks given away by 175 in 2017. Dreams To Kings and Queens hand delivered over half of the backpacks to low income families throughout Athens, Georgia and Atlanta, Georgia. The rest of the backpacks were distributed throughout various schools in those areas and the Athens Area Homeless Shelter.
2016 BACKPACKS GIVEN AWAY: 75
In 2016, this was our first year doing a backpack giveaway. We were able to distribute backpacks throughout schools in Athens. We met our goal and were able to help out a lot of kids that did not have the necessary supplies for the first day of school. After we had passed out all backpacks we received a last minute donation from Christina Carnes Photography and were able to fill up a numerous amount of boxes with school supplies to help out more school in need of supplies to give to students.
Our Founder Tracy Stephens was fortunate to have his coworkers donate backpacks and school supplies, so that we could provide for as many kids as possible in 2019. We want to thank all the staff at the City of Johns Creek.
