The Monet Richardson Community Foundation supports Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA Y Learning Program, Boys & Girls Club in Nash and Edgecombe Counties, and Fairview Elementary School in Edgecombe County by providing backpacks to underserved children grades K-5. The “back to school” feeling that is invigorating and filled with excitement for many, can be a disheartening time for others.

The underlying objective of the Monet Richardson Community Foundation Backpack Program is to help mitigate this challenge for underserved children. MRCF works with the Carrboro Chapel Hill School System, Chapel Hill YMCA, as well as the Edgecombe/Nash County School System, Boy & Girls Club in Nash/Edgecombe Counties, along with community partners to provide backpacks filled with school supplies to the underserved demographics provided by the school system in these counties.
