One of the missions of Maker Depot is to bring focus to local non-profit organizations. This year we are partnering with Backpacks For Life and Children In Unity. Backpacks For Life, based out of Verona, NJ, is in their 4th year of serving the homeless, low income and in need veteran community. They have handed out over 4,000 backpacks to veterans in need, filled with daily essentials, toiletries and long term resources to aid them in getting back on their feet. Children In Unity serves the foster care community by distributing backpacks to children in the foster program who may have nothing but the shirts on their back. They are dedicated to having children help children, and consider their work to be the ultimate way to teach kids compassion and kindness. Together, with Maker Depot Academy, Backpacks for Life and Children in Unity are helping their clients with life skills and educational programs.
