BACKPACK & SCHOOL SUPPLIES DRIVE

Updated July 28, 2021

This year, Children's Fund partnered with the Sydney Paige Foundation for our backpack and school supplies drive. While they were amazing partners during this year's drive, our traditional time window has closed.

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

Ways to give

1.  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.

           

2.  We are also accepting new backpacks and school supply donations at the office, Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM.  Questions about drop-off?  Email us.
