Help 150 WNY children - Donate Now!

New Directions Youth and Family Services is proud to announce our annual Fill a Backpack campaign. Annually serving nearly, 2,000 youth and families from communities all over Western New York, who may be experiencing economic hardships, Fill-a-Backpack (FAB) strives to help families meet their children’s back-to-school needs. This year, nearly 150 children in New Directions’ community-based programs are in need of a backpack, furnished with school supplies, for start of school in September 2018. Children who will benefit are living at home, receiving support services from New Directions, and attending local public schools in Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, and Erie counties.

In-kind donations are welcomed and cane be dropped off at any of the locations listed to the left by Monday, August 27. A list of needed supplies can be found here.

Your donation goes directly to buying needed supplies!
