BP: Bi-CAP backpacks help take a bite out of parents' back-to-school expenses

 

August 23, 2018



BEMIDJI—Finding the money for back-to-school supplies can be tough for some families in Beltrami and Cass counties, where an estimated 15 percent of residents live in poverty.

That's one reason Bemidji's Bi-County Community Action Programs office gives away hundreds of backpacks and school supplies as each school year approaches. This year, The Salvation Army spent about $10,000 on more than 600 backpacks filled with notebooks, pencils, art supplies and more for area students.
