Having been founded by 12 teachers in Wheaton 60 years ago, youth education in our community means a lot to us.

This fundraiser has proven that it means a lot to you, too. Thanks to generous donations from Members, Team Members, and sponsors, we raised $14,833—shattering our goal of $10,000! Thank you for all of your support!

  • 475 backpacks were filled with supplies for high school students.

About We’ve Got Your Back

We’ve Got Your Back provides DuPage County students in need with backpacks filled with supplies for next school year. These backpacks inspire students who may otherwise not be prepared with the tools to succeed in the classroom.

Since its inception in 2014, We’ve Got Your Back has raised over $35,000 and given away nearly 3,000 backpacks with essential school supplies to DuPage County students in need.
