Comfort & Care Backpack Project

What is a Comfort & Care Backpack?


The Comfort & Care Backpack Project provides a bridge of necessary essentials at one of the most chaotic times in a small person's life. 

In its eighth year, the Backpack Project provides 200 backpacks to children in need from age 0 to 17 with clothing, personal care items, a blanket, book and a small toy. The Women's Club of Hollister provides these items through generous donations by its members and sponsors, fundraisers, and from outreach to the community. 

This year we set up a "wish list" on Amazon to fill the backpacks. Copy and paste or click on the link for the list:  You can also make a donation through the "Donate Here" button to the right. 

                                               Thank you!
