Join the DukeDC Women's Forum for our first "Pack the Backpacks" school supply drive to support children served by the DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence (DCCADV).  DCCADV is a member organization of the domestic violence service providers in Washington, DC. Backpacks will be provided to children who have been exposed to or experienced domestic violence. Domestic violence can interrupt survivors' access to safe housing, finances, support networks, and safety. Help us ensure these children have the essential school supplies to return to school this fall prepared. 

You may purchase pre-selected items from the Amazon registry prepared by DCCADV.  The items should be shipped directly to the agency to arrive prior to August 17 - shop soon to avoid delays!
Shipping address, and location for packing the backpacks:  1101 14th Street NW, Suite 300, Washington, DC 20005.

Join us on Saturday morning August 17th to pack the backpacks.  You don't need to purchase supplies to attend the packing event - you may participate in one or both opportunities to make a positive difference!
