Who Are We

Backpack Hero consolidates multiple back-to-school events in East Hillsborough into one fun filled event!

What Are We Doing

Backpack Hero is a community-wide outreach event where East Hillsborough community partners, churches, and local businesses come together to provide backpacks, school supplies, and other critical resources for school-aged children in need within the Eastern and Southern Hillsborough County area. Registration is required to ensure there are resources available for each child.

The Why

Avoid multiple back-to-school backpack giveaway events in the East Hillsborough area.
