Back to school time is exciting. It’s also expensive. School supplies can be pricey, no matter how students prepare for school.

More than 16 million kids live in extreme poverty in the U.S. and many arrive on the first day of school without the supplies they need to learn.

To help some students and their families, Azeem’s Dream Foundation sponsored a backpack give-away. Forty kids received backpacks filled with school supplies. The backpacks were given to students at the 4C Coalitions 7th annual Beach BBQ and Bonfire on August 25.

The backpacks were funded by University of Washington football player Azeem Victor. Azeem raised the money by saving portions of his stipend checks, some grant money and gifts from his family.

Huskie linebacker’s Azeem’s Dream Foundation is dedicated to help kids avoid some of the pitfalls Azeem saw befall others in his hometown of Compton, California.

It’s imperative that we invest in at risk/urban youth & take them from resignation to possibility
