NFA Students Lend a Helping Hand for Annual Backpack Program
Backpack Program

Project Outreach Students and members of the community worked together to stuff and distribute approximately 900 backpacks for low-income youth in Norwich as part of the Norwich Community Backpack Program, Monday, August 13 at NFA's Sachem Campus. The Norwich Community Backpack Program began 21 years ago and almost ended in 2014 when funding came in short. With the help of grants and community partners, the program continues to help students get the school year off to a good start with a new backpack filled with school supplies.
