Supply A Student

From your home or business, right to students in need
volunteers + supplies

Each year, we are honored to help organizations, community groups, and teams large and small come together to support underserved communities through backpack sponsorships.

It starts with a single backpack.

We offer pre-assembled backpacks filled with essential school supplies that are delivered to qualifying schools, or delivery of bulk supplies to groups wanting to sponsor backpacks. We encourage groups to add a personal touch by adding a handwritten uplifting note to each student recipient.

Each sponsored backpack costs $25 and includes: 

  • 3 folders, 2 notebooks, a package of pencils,
  • a package of markers, a pair of scissors, 2 glue sticks,
  • a package of Post-its, 2 pens, a package of crayons,
  • a pencil pouch, a ruler, an eraser, and a pencil sharpener, all in a new basic backpack!

A backpack full of supplies represents a world of opportunity for one child, and an inspiring volunteer opportunity for your family or team.

Ready to build?

Backpack builds offer a tangible way to connect your team and make a difference, together. 

You’ll need:

  • Supplies: We’ll send them!
  • Time: Builds can last from 1 hour to 1 day, with volunteers working in shifts or all together.
  • Space: We recommend around 1450 square feet for 10–20 people to work together and some coverage from the elements so you can work rain or shine. 
  • People: Anyone can build backpacks!
