Our backpack drive is here! Every year, Samaritan House provides more than 2,500 low-income children and teens in San Mateo County with new backpacks and school supplies. Together, with your support, we’re able to send kids back to school, ready for a year of learning and success. Donations of any size are fully tax-deductible and provide an opportunity for children and teens to start the 2023-2024 school year with confidence!

Supporting the drive is simple! All you have to do is visit our drive page and purchase any of the stylish, brand new backpacks. Each backpack comes with all the school supply essentials. Alternatively, you can also click here to donate funds toward the purchase of a backpack kit.

Help our littlest clients get ready for a year of school success. Together, we can make back to school a joyful time for all our neighbors in need!
