Stuffed Backpack Drive!

We need your help! Did you know that the rate of poverty in BCPS has increased by 10% since the start of the pandemic?  Over half of the students in Baltimore County are living in poverty.

We want to help students in need start the school year with the basic tools necessary to succeed. On May 27th, Goucher College staff and faculty will stuff backpacks full of supplies to kick-off our summer drive!

We hope to provide 50 stuffed backpacks to each of our 13 Network Schools – that’s 650 backpacks full of supplies! Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help the students of Baltimore County living in poverty.
