A backpack full of school supplies can take a big chunk of a family’s budget – more so if the family has several children in school.
On Saturday, student teachers from University of Wisconsin System schools and art students from UWM helped a community organization ease that concern for some families.
Student teachers from the Institute for Urban Education housed at UWM, and from UWM’s Peck School of the Arts, joined with Bridge of Hope Center, Inc., an organization that works with families in low-income neighborhoods. The is the fourth year of the backpack giveaway.
