Target of South Florida has partnered with Bochika and World Vision through a Target Community Engagement Fund grant to give backpacks full of school supplies to school children in South Florida and Port – au – Prince, Haiti. Backpacks sent to Haiti will be assembled by South Florida Target employees and will be accompanied by thoughtful message cards written by Haitian community members living in South Florida. These special backpacks will help school children in Cité Soleil, Port – au – Prince, Haiti continue their education. Bochika will distribute the backpacks to Haiti school children during February and March.
