Books for America and Walter Payton Back Pack Drive, by a Representative of the Lakeside Collection

When children resume their studies in the fall, it is important that they are equipped with necessary supplies and educational materials, no matter what. Books for America and Walter Payton Back Pack Drive are two educational charities that stand out for their dedicated efforts to help families with low income receive the supplies that their kids need. Based in Washington, DC, Books for America organizes regular book drives to provide young students with the tools they need for learning. Last year, the not-for-profit organization donated over $800,000 worth of books and educational materials to schools and shelters in the DC area. Another commendable group, the Walter and Connie Payton Foundation collects backpacks and other school supplies for children whose families cannot afford these very basic educational products.

Lakeside Collection, an online and print catalog sales company of lifestyle and home decor products, is a proud supporter of Books for America, the Walter and Connie Payton Foundation, and many other charitable organizations.
