Backpack-A-Thon 2022: Help students get school supplies they need this year!

ORLANDO, Fla. — Join WFTV 9 Family Connection and our partners McCoy Federal Credit Union, Mister Sparky, Stanley Steemer, and The UPS Store for the Hope Now Foundation’s 2022 Backpack-a-thon Virtual School Supply Drive which will once again take the place of the annual Back to School Bash.

Because of the current climate, we will hold a “Virtual” backpack and supply drive this year to help local students. The school year ahead will bring many challenges to local families and one thing is certain, students will need the proper tools to make the school year a success. Your online support will allow you to sponsor a student with a backpack and/or school supplies, or even sponsor a classroom of students.
