Elgin Community College Faculty Association (ECCFA) logo

The Elgin Community College Faculty Association (ECCFA) is dedicated to supporting children, families and teachers in our community through our support for Project Backpack. Our hope is to provide backpacks and school supplies to all students in the district who need assistance, as well as to link families to some of the many services available to them.

Our children are our future, and that future is fueled by the power of education!

Kane County Teachers Credit Union logoKane County Teachers Credit Union (KCT) is proud to support Project Backpack and have enjoyed being a part of it since its inception. The KCT motto is “Building Stronger Communities Together” and by supporting an organization that provides free backpacks and school supplies to thousands of children in our community there is no better way to give back. They say it takes a village but in our case it takes a community to support and encourage those children as they go back to school and we are thrilled to be a part of it!

PLS Financial Services logoPLS Financial Services seeks to support organizations that create new ways to improve services and outreach to those who are most vulnerable in the community. Their partnership with Project Backpack emerged from a sense of purpose and duty. It is important to them that they build lasting relationships with organizations that support issues that impact their customers, employees and their employees’ families. They are proud to support Project Backpack.
