AAA Backpack Program

Since 2022, AAA Central Penn and Partner Organizations Fill Backpacks for Local Children in Need


AAA Central Penn wants to make sure that local children have what they need to be successful. That's why AAA, through its AAA Cares community volunteer program, has partnered with a dozen other Central Pennsylvania organizations for its third annual AAA Cares Backpack Program in 2024. The program has provided over 1,800 backpacks filled with school supplies to children in all nine counties that AAA Central Penn serves including Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Huntingdon, Juniata, Lancaster, Lebanon, Mifflin, and Perry.  

AAA Cares Backpacks


Thanks to the support of AAA Central Penn and its 12 partners, 1,500 more backpacks will be donated in 2024. Students not only receive backpacks this year, but also three-ring binders, folders, notebooks, pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners, highlighters, rulers, and tablets. With caregivers expected to spend $890 per child in grades K-12 on back-to-school supplies, according to National Retail Federation, every bit of support for children in need can help. Assembly lines will be setup in participating AAA offices for team members to come together and support the program.


In 2024, school supply sponsors are LeTort Trust, McConkey Insurance and Benefits, AAA Financial Services, Club Assist, URL Insurance Group, AAA Insurance Agency, Donegal Insurance, Harrisburg International Airport, Hershey Entertainment & Resorts, JPL/ d'vinci, Santander, and Wayne's Towing & Recovery.

 

Benefitting organizations include, the Mix, Crispus Attucks Community Center, Sylvan Heights Science Center, Lower Dauphin Communities that Care, New Hope Ministries, Project Share, The Lumina Center, Lebanon School District, Warwick School District, a local women's shelter, and local back-to-school events.
