Help Us to Prepare Students for Success and Provide a Sense of Belonging, Psychological Safety & Wellness
2023 PairUP for SUCCESS Program
For the last 8 years our program has been call B&C Back 2 School Supply Drive. Our focus was on collecting school supplies in mass quantities that would be solely donated to local organizations and schools. Last year we launched a new program and will be continuing with that program in 2023.
PairUP for Success
Back 2 School Program
A foundational principle of the PairUp Society’s vision and mission is to “PairUP” directly with individuals and families. We provide support and resources to enable more equitable and inclusive outcomes and environments in their schools and communities. Ensuring that students have what they need to feel good about themselves and to be successful helps them to develop a sense of belonging, psychological safety and wellness.
The 2023 PairUP for Success program goals are to:
Connect with the specific needs of students who are currently in the foster care system.
Provide the students with school supplies and clothing items of their choice.
Equip the students for the start of the school year and throughout the school year.
To accomplish these goals we are:
Collaborating with the Bucks County chapter of Fostering Hope to connect directly with the needs of children in the foster care system.
Partnering with local businesses to provide the specific needs of the children.
For 2023, our corporate partners are: First Bank, Merck Sharp & Dohme Federal Credit Union, Radcliffe's Strength House and Repko Law. Each company has been given a specific list of students needs. The list includes school supplies, back back, sweatshirt/hoodie and sneakers of the students choosing.
Want to PairUP for Success with us? Donate a monetary gift and let us do the shopping for you. We will be purchasing "Dignity Duffel Bags" which will be used by the student when transitioning between homes, cultural/ethnic personal care items and gift cards (ex. Amazon, DSW, Old Navy, Gap, TJ Maxx, etc.) for the student to use as they wish.
The PairUP Society is a tax exempt 501(c)3 organization. 100% of the donations will go to children going back to school in the surrounding community and school districts.
