Started in 2017, the backpack project is taken on by numerous councils, churches, and organizations. They collect adult backpacks, fill them with hygiene supplies and other basic needs, and then take them to their local parole office, jail, or prison. The first 24 hours of reentry is a crucial time and this supplies helps take away some of the stress. In 2019 we have collected over 100 backpacks.
