We welcome you to take part of this initiative by visiting our Gofundme link to donate. Contributions of every level, small to large are appreciated!  
The Eric Berry Foundation is hosting our 3rd annual 500 Backpack Giveaway on July 30th! Year after year, we continue to see this event having a tremendous impact for the students of Independence and the surrounding areas.
Why we continue to take action: the statistics are woefully staggering, recognizing the unfortunate number of children that go their first day of school without adequate supplies.
Our program provides 95% of the required elementary supplies and 65% at the high school level! Additionally, Truman Medical Center got behind the Eric Berry Foundation providing medical needs at our hosted events. Every one of our 500 kids will receive a wellness check and dental screening, keeping them healthy. We will also be offering a limited number of free sports physicals with registration.*  
There is no need to register to receive your backpack. However, we are a first-come-first-serve event so expect lines. Eric Berry and fellow KC athletes will join 2015 Miss Missouri Erica Stone and Miss Teen Missouri Joye Forrest to autographs all of the backpacks.
