Annual Backpack Drive:

Our heartfelt thank you to everyone who joined us on Sunday, August 18th, 2019 to help assemble backpacks and fill them with all the necessary school supplies for distribution to needy kids in the Bay Area. Thank you for all your hard work in making sure that these kids are equipped with everything they need for the new school year!

IFFER would especially like to thank all the kids: Alisha Nand, Andrea Jimenez, Diana Martinez Hernandez, Prashant Naidu, Prisha Kapur, Sonali Singh, Shinal Kumar and Vihaan Sharma for your volunteer services. Thank you for all your efforts, for showing so much enthusiasm and working together to make a difference in the lives of less fortunate kids. You are amazing young people and we are so proud of you!

To everyone who donated towards IFFER’s Backpack Drive: Thank you for making our Backpack Drive a success! Your generous donations really lifted a financial burden that many cannot afford. The support we receive from community members like you makes a big difference in our ability to help those around us. Your caring spirit is greatly appreciated!

Every child deserves to be ready for their first day of school with confidence. Many of us were probably blessed to grow up in homes or raise kids in homes where going backpack shopping is a given. Unfortunately, this is not the experience of everyone living in our communities. We hope that these brand new backpacks and school supplies will give the kids that morale boost to stand tall and walk thru the doors of their schools to start their new school year.
