Annual Backpack Supply Drive
Since 2007, 3Rs has partnered with Unum to help Maine students in need! Each year approximately 200 volunteers from UNUM help us fill over 5,000 backpacks to distribute throughout the state. With support from UNUM, L.L. Bean, Texas Instruments, and other local businesses and individuals, 3Rs provides students with the supplies they need to start the school year off prepared to learn! During the course of our partnership with UNUM, an estimated 50,000 students from K-12th grade have received backpacks filled with new school supplies.
If you would like to be part of this program you can help by donating backpacks and supplies or by making a financial contribution to the program.
