Children Backpacks.jpg


Thru June 24, 2022

This year, Children's Fund partnered with the Sydney Paige Foundation again for our backpack and school supplies drive. 

There are multiple ways to give a backpack and school supplies to children in need. Below we have shared a few different ways that you can help and provide students with the tools they need to succeed.

Ways to participate

1.  Purchase a backpack from our partners at Sydney Paige Foundation.  You chose the type of backpack and what supplies you want to include, and the donation comes directly to us to distribute to children in our community.  Shop here. 

2. Make a $40 donation and we'll shop for a backpack & school supplies for you. Be sure type "Backpack" in the comments section.  You may also make an online credit card donation using the yellow "DONATE" tab above.


3. We are also accepting new backpacks and school supply donations at the office, Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM.  Questions about drop-off?  Email us.
