MICOP’s Backpack Drive

June 30, 2016 @ 8:00 am - August 1, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

Hello friends,

MICOP asks for your support to help our indigenous youth be prepared for the upcoming school year! We will be registering 600 children for backpacks stuffed with school supplies and we need your help to achieve our goal! Please help with online donations (specify Backpack Campaign) on our donation page, checks (write “Backpack” in the memo) or if you like to shop, you can bring backpacks and school supplies directly to the MICOP offices at 520 West 5th St., Suite F or Suite G, Oxnard, 93030.

Many of the young children you help today with your generous donations become members of our Tequio Youth Group and go on to colleges throughout the state and nation. We are proud of our past students who have graduated from schools such as CSUCI, UC Santa Cruz, UCLA, UCSB and Washington State Pullman, among others. These are the same students that received new backpacksand school supplies through MICOP years earlier. It makes a difference!

Join us for our NIGHT IN OAXACA party on Saturday, August 20th to meet this year’s Tequio scholarship recipients.

Our backpack drive begins today and ends on August 1st!

Please share this event and welcome your friends to help in our campaign!

Thank you for your help,

The Mixteco Project
