Provide New and Durable Backpacks for

Children at Shady Lane!

We are pleased to announce that Andrew's backpack fundraising campaign was a success! He exceeded his goal of $1,250.00 with raising an amazing $1,729.00


Andrew Smet is an 11-year-old boy and proud boy scout member with a big heart. He started the fundraiser in hopes of providing new and durable backpacks for the children of Shady Lane Mobile Homes in Thermal, CA. With the money raised he was able to provide 65 brand new backpacks filled with school supplies! On August 4th Andrew and the Caritas team went to Shady Lane to distribute the gifts. Take a moment to see how the day went below.
