Backpacks For Success - Legacy-Advisors

City Team Ministries, located in Chester, PA, is a very special ministry supporting the poor and homeless throughout the Delaware Valley. It started in 1957 in San Jose, CA, and has since become a national organization providing hot meals, safe shelter, emergency food boxes and clothing for hundreds of thousands of low income families in need. They also offer a recovery program for men with drug and alcohol problems. Mothers with at-risk young children stop by every Wednesday afternoon to receive diapers, formula and other baby items. Many lives have been transformed and given hope that real change is possible. The Legacy Foundation provided a grant for City Team Ministries’ Backpacks for Success program, benefiting over 2200 students from families in need of assistance. These special students were provided with their very own backpack filled with school supplies for the upcoming school year. Often, many of these children go to school with nothing and receiving these backpacks surely made them feel confident. Legacy associates also had the opportunity to volunteer their time and helped to fill these backpacks with all the supplies the students needed for a happier and productive school year, eliminating the stress and financial burden on their parents.
