This organization packs 1000s of backpacks for local county schools. The coordinator gets all the supply lists from the schools and for each grade. Bags are packed with all needed supplies and the kids get to pick out a favorite bag. It's a win-win for the schools, teachers, students. Everyone starts the year off on a positive note thanks to ADFAC.

ADFAC does a wonderful job getting help where help is needed in distressed areas. Not only in social services but housing as well. The staff are well trained, intelligent, and have a caring heart. It is amazing what ADFAC accomplishes with limited resources.
