Back To School

Changing lives in rural Appalachia!

A donation of $10 will provide a new backpack and supplies to a very deserving student.

Do you remember how much fun it was to get new school supplies when you were a child?

Parents want their children to have everything they need for a good education, but in Appalachia, this privilege is sometimes an impossibility. The Mission of Hope needs your help with its Back to School program. The 2020 campaign will be our 23rd annual event and we plan to assist over 11,500 Appalachian children at 30 rural elementary schools with the school supplies they will need to get a good start to their school year. A donation of $10 will provide a new backpack and supplies to a very deserving student.
