Our Mission, Our Board

Delivering Hope. Changing Hearts


Our Mission:

Rallying our communities and the children within them to help children in need.

Our Leadership:

In January of 2008, Stephen’s Backpacks Society was officially formed. Our overall goal is to continue the good work that was begun during the Christmas season of 2006. We recognize and expect that in order to remain effective, we will need to continually strive to find creative ways to reach out to our communities. When Stephen McPhee spoke of a dream to help children in need, we recognized that this was not just a dream, but a vision of how things could be. We now consider ourselves charged with the task of casting that vision before us and our communities so that we can bring hope and support to those in need in our community. Our inspiration? The simple fact is that if a six year old can envision a way to have an impact on his community, so can anyone else.
