Support CEAM’s backpack initiative

Jun 16, 2017

The CEAM Team is gearing up to make sure some of the most disadvantaged students start the 2017-18 school year with all the supplies they need.

CEAM is partnering with several local organizations to give out over 1,000 backpacks (filled with key school supplies) in July and August.

But in order to reach that goal, we need YOUR help.

Please consider becoming a monthly supporter of the CEAM Team right now. A contribution of just $5 a month will make sure that 12 needy students have a backpack full of the supplies they need when they start school this fall.

Provide your support by becoming a monthly donor right now!

Each backpack we are donating will cost about $5, so we need your help to raise $5,000 in the next month to make sure we can help these students.

Your tax-deductible donation will mean that scholars have the tools they need to succeed as soon as they start school.

Make a one-time donation to help students.
