Of Central Virginia
Lucia Hoerr (14) started a small charity called Backpack Buddies in early 2010, when she was just nine years old. Backpack Buddies helps many of the underprivileged children in Central Virginia start the school year off right. Please donate today.
Donate today and make a difference. . . locally!
The fundraising period for the 2014 year of Backpack Buddies is over, but donations will still be accepted through the winter! Donate by clicking the large red button above, or heading to the "Donate" page on this website! Anything helps! Thank you.
Backpack Buddies of Central VA is here to try and make sure that all the local underprivileged children start the school year off right with a backpack and supplies. We want to start locally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and then expand and grow over the coming years. We want to help everyone!
Every summer Lucia and her team of friends gear up for the busy months of fundraising ahead of them. Make a contribution of money, backpacks, or supplies. Volunteers are always needed for fundraisers, and to help us fill the backpacks in August! Contact us if you would like to help or donate.
Filling Day 2014
Thank you to everybody who came out and helped fill backpacks on August 14th! We filled 245 backpacks with school supplies, and it would not have been possible if it wasn't for the help from our dedicated volunteers! Thank you!
