It's time for the Apex Chamber of Commerce's annual Bookbag Bonanaza initiative! Started in 2000, the Apex Chamber created Bookbag Bonanza to help meet the needs of Apex students who may otherwise go without new school supplies.
This program would not be a success without generous community members like you! Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 and with you, we can do it! All proceeds raised are spent on purchasing school supplies and gift cards for children at our local schools. How exciting to be part of making the start of a child's school year just a bit brighter by having a new backpack and school supplies.
Students are selected by the staff at the schools and the criteria is based on the free and reduced lunch participants.The supplies are based on the student supply lists distributed by the schools prior to the start of the academic year - the same list all parents are given to purchase school supplies.
