Students Preparing for Back2School – WeSeeU (We See You!)
The WeSeeU annual Back2School Backpack campaign provides bookbags filled with supplies for students in our underserved schools. Our goal this year is 400 filled backpacks from the WeSeeU Backpack Campaign Initiative.
We will join community partners Children With a Vision Inc and Young Lions in the distribution of backpacks at their annual Back2School events. WeSeeU also selects 25 Elementary students that need support with Back2School items and provides the following: 2 school uniforms, a pair of shoes, socks, a backpack, and school supplies.
Similar to our Holiday Angel program, these 25 Elementary students can be sponsored by individuals, families, organizations, or businesses in the community. Please consider making a difference by sponsoring one of our students, donating backpacks and/or school supplies, or making a donation to WeSeeU in support of this initiative.
WeSeeU partners with various companies and foundations throughout Hillsborough County in an effort to identify and provide for a wider audience to include: Dungy Family Foundation, Children with a Vision, Young Lions Organization, Stano Foundation, Hillsborough County Public Schools, PricewaterhouseCoopers, The Sandy and Lescher Family Foundation, The Dream Center of Tampa and various other organizations. WeSeeU relies 100% on volunteers. The students of Hillsborough County, participating churches and, various other organizations in the area have partnered with WeSeeU to fill this volunteer need. New volunteers, sponsors and foundations are always welcome and encouraged.
