Making a difference, one backpack at a time.

The Larks and Dakota Eye Institute understand the importance of equipping today’s youth with the tools necessary to be successful in the classroom. That’s why together we developed the Backpack Giveback Program.

The Backpack Giveback Program helps provide students in need with backpacks filled with school supplies.


  1. Fans brought (2) school supply items to the Dakota Eye Institute north location on Wednesday, August 4th.
  2. They received a limited edition “see-through” backpack courtesy of Dakota Eye Institute!
  3. For every backpack given away, Dakota Eye Institute donated one backpack filled with school supplies to Carrie’s Kids.
