For the Kid in All of Us helps children through its annual popular Toy Party held in the winter and also via its other incredibly popular fundraiser, Backpack in the Park.

This year, Backpack in the Park, held Aug. 1 at Piedmont Park, collected more than 1,400 backpacks filled with school supplies for children in need. Check out photos from the event here.

“We are ecstatic with the results from this year’s Backpack in the Park,” said Jorge Esteban, For the Kid in All of Us president, in a press release.

“This record-setting event would not have been possible without the commitment and collective support of our board of directors, countless volunteers, patrons and sponsors. We toppled the record we set last year for backpacks collected at the event,” he said. “Our collection this year increased 140 percent over last year’s event.”

The nine beneficiaries include Agape, AID Atlanta, The Alcove, CHRIS Kids, Camp Horizon, Cool Girls, Lake Forest Elementary School, Nicholas House, and for the first time, Lutheran Services of Georgia.

The Toy Party is set for Dec. 5. Last year, it collected more than 5,000 toys and gift cards for children in need.Since its founding in 2003, Toy Party has distributed more than 27,000 toys and gift cards, while Backpack in the Park, which launched in 2006, has donated more than 3,700 backpacks filled with school supplies.
