The Blue Ribbon Project desperately needs your help! As you may know, our Backpacks of Love program serves abused and neglected children in our community by providing them emergency essentials the moment they have to be removed from an abusive or dangerous environment. These Backpacks of Love truly make a difference in a child's life by offering them hope and comfort as they are going through a very traumatic time in their life. While we regularly receive great donations to support this program, we are constantly running short on necessary clothing items to meet the need of youth and children entering care. It's difficult to think that we can't always meet the needs to help these youth. This is where we need your help. At the moment, we desperately need clothing items to go into our Backpacks of Love.
