2022 Backpack Campaign Launch!

Education gives us a road map to self-discovery. This fosters self-confidence, stability, and aspirations. The lessons learned throughout our education are invaluable and school supplies play an important part in that process. We take notes, complete homework assignments, write essays, highlight textbooks, anything to help us study the lessons we are taught.

What if you didn’t have these supplies? The right school supplies make all the difference. Backpacks, notebooks, folders, pencils, and pens are more than just school supplies, they are necessary tools every student needs. For some families, these are not easily accessible. Many families struggle with the growing annual expense of school supplies for their children. Our goal is to alleviate that burden and help equip students with the tools they need to be successful in their education.

Through generous donations from our communities and team members, Yulista Cares delivers backpacks filled with school supplies to students and teachers across the nation. With proper school supplies and resources, students gain the confidence and motivation to grow in their education. These tools will help them be prepared, motivated, and organized for the upcoming school year.

In past years, we have exceeded our goal of 1,200 backpacks thanks to the contributions of our incredible teams and supportive communities. This summer we are aiming for a record-breaking year! Our 2022 goal is to deliver 1,500 backpacks & teacher supplies to students and teachers in the Calista Region including our local communities across the U.S.! 

This year we have more ways to support than ever before! We encourage everyone to find creative ways to raise funds and awareness. Our backpack campaign is much more than just a school supply drive. We come together to support and create a brighter future.
