Banner Backpack Program Grows in 2020
From our first day, the B3 Foundation has been committed to providing students in Tacoma, Los
Angeles and Guam the opportunity to pursue their academic journeys to the fullest extent. This
year, that commitment has remained unwavering in the face of COVID-19. We know that the
students and families in our communities need support now more than ever and it is our honor
to partner with school and local organizations once again in our annual back to school drive. We
understand how important access to quality school supplies and backpacks are for families, and
recognize the financial burden this brings upon families each year.
This year we were able to raise more money and distribute more backpacks than ever before!
With the help of Blu School Supplies and while following social distancing guidelines in
partnership with each of our recipient schools, we distributed 1,900 backpacks filled with school
supplies to six elementary and middle schools in Tacoma, Los Angeles and Guam. Our 2020
recipient schools are:
First Creek Middle School
Sheridan Elementary School
Tyee Elementary School
Weigand Avenue Elementary School
KIPP Pueblo Unido
The Boys & Girls Club of South Puget Sound
We are so proud that this program has grown every year since its inception, and hope to
provide even more backpacks and supplies in 2021 and beyond.
