You empowered local students to go back to school with confidence.

After several disrupted years, getting kids excited to go back to school has never been so important, and SHIM is making sure students have what they need to succeed. We distributed 1,550 backpacks full of supplies for all local children. Thank you for your help in providing back-to-school necessities!

Thank you for supporting SHIM’s 2022 Back to School distributions!
