Backpack Buddies

Our Mission


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.

Backpack Buddies is here to make sure that children in need in the state of Virginia start the school year off right with a backpack and supplies. We hope that by providing these students with backpacks we will better prepare them for the beginning of each year, thus improving their educational experiences and cutting down on any financial burdens.

Lucia Hoerr (18) started a small charity called Backpack Buddies in early 2010, when she was just nine years old. Backpack Buddies helps prepare many of the underprivileged children in Virginia for the beginning of each school year by providing them with new backpacks full of fun school supplies. Please donate today!
