Hannah Kutnick's 3rd Annual Backpack Bonanza to Support Lunchbox Express News Coverage

12-year-old Hannah Kutnick recently organized her third annual “Backpack Bonanza,” a drive to generate donations for back-to-school backpacks and school supplies for at-risk children. She collected and donated 400 loaded backpacks to Jewish Family Service, which were distributed to children in need through our Lunchbox Express program and to other families served through various JFS programs. She raised more than $3,500 this year and a total of $8,100 over three years. She was able to negotiate significant discounts with several retailers to put together 400 full backpacks to supplement those provided by Jewish Family Service.
