Muleskinners Watertown 2022 Backpack Drive has concluded! Check back for updates on our successful campaign!


As back to school season approaches, we're helping provide supplies and support to help local area students and their families. You can help too! Sponsor a backpack or a whole classrooms worth and help make a difference and set up our local youth for success.

According to NYS data, the Watertown School District has approximately 3895 Students enrolled in K-12. Within our schools, its estimated that 2,935 students qualify as economically disadvantaged. That means roughly 75% of our local students fit at least one of the following criteria.

Economically disadvantaged students are those who participate in, or whose family participates in, economic assistance programs, such as the free or reduced-price lunch programs, Social Security Insurance (SSI), Food Stamps, Foster Care, Refugee Assistance (cash or medical assistance), Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP), Safety Net Assistance (SNA), Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), or Family Assistance: Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). If one student in a family is identified as low income, all students from that household (economic unit) may be identified as low income. 

Our children are the single greatest asset to our community. They hold the keys to our hearts, our neighborhoods, and our future. The easiest way to help, is to help. If you have the means, a small donation will help one of our local kids, a local teacher, and help our community grow and thrive. With your help, Muleskinners RC hope to give our kids an opportunity to get ahead.


Thank you to the generous organziations that have already contributed to the Muleskinners Watertown 2022 Backpack Drive!
