This Summer you can fill the hearts and backpacks of students at Project HOME’s Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs (HLCCTL). Our back-to-school backpack drive will provide students in our K-12 programming with backpacks and other essential supplies they’ll need to hit the ground running when school opens.

In addition to backpacks, we’re also collecting in-demand school supplies like notebooks, loose-leaf paper, pens, pencils, crayons, markers, scissors and more.

Best of all? You can purchase all of these items through our Roonga campaign and everything will be shipped straight to the HLCCTL in time for our big back-to-school celebration on August 19th.

If it is easier for you to order through your Amazon account, you can find a great selection of back-to-school items on our Amazon Wishlist. Anything you purchase will be delivered to our main office at 1515 Fairmount Avenue and we’ll make sure it gets to a student at the HLCCTL.

All of Project HOME’s education initiatives at the HLCCTL provide children and teens in Philadelphia’s 19121 community with a safe place to learn and grown, as well as access to high-quality, low-barrier academic, arts, and technology programming.
