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 2023 backpack drive page. Similar to previous years, anyone can purchase the cost of a new backpack and grade-appropriate school supplies online. With advance notice, we invite corporate teams to sponsor bulk orders of backpacks from Roonga to have shipped to their campuses for special packing events
