Backpack Building Event

  • Wintonbury Church 54 Maple Avenue Bloomfield, CT, 06002 United States (map)

Join us as we assemble hundreds of backpacks for survivors of sex trafficking or those at high risk of being trafficked in CT. 

This year, we're donating a total of 477 backpacks! Each bag contains school supplies such as notebooks, pens, etc.  They also come equipped with bracelets with the National Human Trafficking Hotline Number and info cards telling youth where they can go to get help. Cards of encouragement are also placed in the bags. The backpacks will be distributed by DCF workers who will use the backpacks to talk to youth about trafficking.  

Check out this great video by Gabriella Aspuru of Cornerstone Church in Cheshire.

You can also sponsor a backpack for $25
