Services Provided: Nesel Packs are backpacks designed for students on the autism spectrum. It has features, such as clips on the straps to attach tools, specially designed straps to mimic a compression vest, a security strap, pouches on the inside to add weight, and an ID tag in the front to customize the bag.

The design and accessibility of the backpack may also help kids with anxiety issues, ADHD, or dyslexia.
Provider Profiles: Created by students in an entrepreneurial course at the University of Minnesota, Nesel Packs partnered with Fraser — a Minnesota-based group that provides services to folks with autism.
For every $100 donation to the campaign, Fraser provides a backpack to a child in need. Any interested parent looking to purchase one for their child can buy one for $115 (if they have the packs in stock).
