2017 We’ve Got Your Back Backpack Fundraiser Results
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 over $14,000 and were able to purchase 1,250 supply kits that were handed out with backpacks at the 27th Annual Back to School Fair. Thank you for all of your support!
About We’ve Got Your Back

Since its inception in 2014, We’ve Got Your Back has raised over $49,000 and given away nearly 4,200 backpacks with essential school supplies to DuPage County students in need.
