Backpacks & Breakfast
If your school-aged children need supplies for the coming school year, Northern Kentucky Harvest may be able to help.
The nonprofit has 1,008 backpacks containing paper, pens and pencils, and other basic supplies to give out to K-12 students in the Northern Kentucky counties of Boone, Kenton, and Campbell– it just needs to know who to give them to.
The organization is asking parents to register by July 31. We ask that you complete the form below by this deadline.
In past years, Northern Kentucky Harvest distributed the supplies during Backpacks & Breakfast in Covington’s Goebel Park. But with the pandemic, it’s adopting the same drive-thru format on the Be Concerned parking lot as last year.
“We know there are still a lot of people out there hurting financially, so we’re hoping we can connect with some of them and help them a little bit,” said Paul Gottbrath, board president of Northern Kentucky Harvest.
Backpacks & Breakfast is now in its 21st year. It started out with about 150 backpacks in 2001 and has grown to average 900-1,000 annually, with more than half of those families typically coming from Covington. The event will be held on August 14 & 15, 2021 at 1100 Pike Street.
