2022 Backpack Project

The Backpack Project is a major initiative of United Way of Androscoggin County. The program provides backpacks and school supplies to local students in need for the upcoming school year. The Backpack Project is one of many ways in which United Way works to increase the academic success and high school graduation rates of students in Androscoggin and Oxford Counties. 

Joleen Bedard, Executive Director of UWAC, says, “Together, we can inspire children and give them the tools to succeed in school. Going back to school is supposed to be an exciting time for children, filling them with anticipation, confidence, and motivation. This is our way of letting students know that we believe in them and their ability to succeed in school."
