Our 27th annual Good Start Back to School project in August will provide backpacks and customized kits of school supplies for 3649 students from low-income families in the Bellevue (WA) School District.  This is a huge increase of nearly 80% over the 2030 district request for the 2021-2022 school year.  Students will receive them before school starts.
