Last year this program helped over 1,500 kids with the tools they needed to go back to school.  This fall will be like no other, as many students will experience a blended learning experience of in-home and at-school learning.  No matter where students are learning, they will need supplies to do so. Unfortunately, these items are beyond the reach of many. 

Maine families are struggling to meet basic needs because of job loss or income reduction due to COVID-19.  Families are experiencing financial struggles and students, whether learning at home or in school are in need of support. 

The Penquis "We’ve Got Your Back" is here to help ease some of the financial burden facing families and provides students K-12 living in Penobscot, Piscataquis and Knox counties with backpacks and school supplies. Join us in equipping students with the tools they need to start this new school year no matter where they are learning this year.
