The backpacks will be donated to Teytum’s Gifts, a nonprofit in Yakima that helps foster children. 

Students will be donating the supplies during the Association of Washington Student Leaders (AWSL) Fall Conference in Yakima, which is being held at Eisenhower High School from Oct. 13 to 15.

Thousands of students from all over the state are participating in the conference, presenting a number of different community service projects. .
