The amazing members of the Morning Star Youth Council held their 4th Annual Backpack Drive Challenge with a goal of collecting 500 backpacks filled with much-needed school supplies for remote students across tribal nations. Their organization reached out to native royalty, artists, musicians, groups and organizations across the nation to help donate backpacks and supplies. They have had an overwhelming response of backpacks pouring in before the beginning of the school season! We are super proud of these wonderful members and everything they have accomplished for native students.
We as BBP were able to donate 7 filled backpacks and monetary donations while at the “Our Perspective” Youth Event on the Gila Reservation. Amber Brown of the MSYC was able to meet with us and pick them up for immediate delivery.
Thank you Morning Star Youth Council!
