stuffed backpacks with school supplies that were donated over the summer. It
was all leading up to the big moment: giving the backpacks to their new owners

Lucia Hoerr founded
Backpack Buddies when she was just 10 years old.
"I'll take them in and
I'll be bringing all the backpacks in and they'll be like ah the backpack
girl's here - it's the backpack girl and they'll all be crowding around and
smiling and pointing at them and saying which one they want and that just makes
me feel so happy," Hoerr said.
By stuffing more than 100
backpacks, the group exceeded its goal for the year.
