The Community Backpack Program

CEO is a proud participant of the Community Backpack Program, an effort of several local organizations to help local youth start their school year with new backpacks filled with school supplies. Last year we provided more than 600 backpacks to children in Rensselaer County.

The following supplies are needed for our children:

  • #2 Pencils
  • 12-inch rulers
  • Backpacks
  • 1-Subject spiral notebooks
  • 24 Packs of crayons
  • Dry erase markers
  • Highlighters
  • 2” Plastic binders
  • Plastic pencil cases with zippers
  • Pens – blue or black ink
