2022 Back to School Supply Drive Recap

The 7th Annual Back to School Drive was the most successful thus far, we collected over 400 backpacks and supplies. After a month of collecting donations, a team of volunteers sorted and filled the backpacks the day before the big event. Each bookbag contained notebooks, rulers, glue sticks, pens, pencils, crayons, folders, and more. The Yale Latino Networking Group, Future Leaders of Yale, and Yale African American Affinity Group partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of New Haven County this year to hold a back-to-school fair at their Columbus Avenue location.
