The Back to School Giveaway Project was started in 2009 by ICNA Relief USA.
ICNA Relief USA is a non-profit 501c3 charity that seeks to alleviate human suffering by providing caring and compassionate service to victims of adversities and survivors of disasters. ICNA Relief strives to build healthy communities, strengthen families and create opportunities for those in despair while maintaining dignity and advocating for basic human needs.
Since 2009 ICNA Relief has held Back to School Giveaway events across the United States, giving out close to 100,000 school bags total. Each school bag we give contains essential school supplies, helping children in lower income communities gear up for school. Education is the passport for success, and the lack of education is linked to many of the problems in our communities today.
