NEW AMERICAN PATHWAYS

Baking for Backpacks -- GOAL: $4,000 to help get refugee youth ready for back-to-school

UPDATE: WE DID IT, BUT WE ARE STILL RAISING FUNDS BEYOND OUR 4K GOAL! WE UNDERSTAND NEW AMERICAN PATHWAYS IS EXPECTING MANY AFGHAN REFUGEES IN THE COMING WEEKS, WITH KIDS WHO WILL BE HEADED TO SCHOOL (SOME FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!!!) SEE BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION

Refugee youth face challenges to success including education gaps, language barriers, and limited supplemental academic support, but when they are supported by social structures and targeted assistance, they make rapid progress in their education and thrive as members of their community. Our current mission is to help get 180 refugee children in Atlanta a proper backpack and supplies as they return to IN-PERSON (Yay!) learning this Fall!!! New American Pathways, one of our favorite non-profits, is looking for our help.

How it works: Our goal is to raise $4,000 this summer that will be used to purchase the backpacks themselves and fill them with binders, pens, pencils, rulers, glue sticks, crayons, folders, etc. so we can get them off to a good start when they return to in-person learning.

We have a four-part plan:

1. A Venmo effort to try to raise cash for backpacks and supplies. Please visit our Venmo: https://venmo.com/u/backpacktoschool2021


2. A summer bake sale to try to raise more cash. For this, we will try to put the cooking skills we learned during our time on Chopped Junior (Lily) and MasterChef Junior (Evie) a few years back to good use

3. This one is a big maybe, but we planted a HUGE garden with our Dad, and we are going to try to sell the veggies at our local farmers market if the agricultural fairies are good to us

4. Finally, we will host a giant backpack stuffing party for our friends at the end of the summer and will charge admission in the form of school supplies. We will cook for them of course

We are so grateful that you are here and would appreciate anything you can give.

xoxoxo,
Lily and Evie

We want to use our skills to help elect Jon Ossoff (who went to our school!!) and the Reverend Raphael Warnock. Donate to either campaign or both, and you will be rewarded with delicious cupcakes. We hope you will donate weekly until the runoff election on January 5.
