The community’s support of the back-to-school drive over the years has been wonderful. And, we know how much everyone loves to pick out backpacks and fill them with supplies. However, due to the high volume of other donations processed by only a small number of staff during limited program hours, all donations of fully assembled backpack kits will be conducted online again this year.

Please consider donating a fully assembled backpack via our 2022 backpack drive page. Similar to previous years, anyone can purchase the cost of a new backpack and grade-appropriate school supplies online. We hope for your understanding in our decision to maintain reasonable distance and protection of one another.
