Backpack Challenge


Collecting June 21-July 19

HELPING OUR COMMUNITIES

Last year, the Trusted Real Estate Advisors at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty collected over 250 backpacks filled with school supplies for children in Northeast Florida during its 21st Annual Backpack Challenge. The team is excited to kick-off the 22nd Annual Backpack Challenge. Below is a list of school supplies by grade level. Some schools have adopted a clear bag policy. Mesh and clear backpacks are greatly appreciated.
