Tuscaloosa Backpack Coalition Tuscaloosa Area Organizations are showing that working together accomplishes more. This year the goal is to serve 2000 students in Tuscaloosa City and County Schools by providing Backpacks full of School Supplies. These students have been pre-selected. During the month of July we are asking for donations of supplies and monies through the Apples for Education campaign. The distribution of Backpacks will be on August 2nd, at various locations around the city and county of Tuscaloosa.
