Help us meet our goal of giving 900 backpacks full of school supplies to children of our program participants! Contribute to RESOURCE’s backpack and school supply drive for the 2017-2018 school year by August 15.

“Many of our program participants need to focus on basic living expenses like food and rent,” says Courtney Flug, volunteer program manager, “Which makes purchasing backpacks and school supplies cost prohibitive. Supporting this program is a great way to have a profound impact on students and their learning experience.”

Items we need:

  • New backpacks ready for use
  • School supplies like pens, pencils, paper (click here for a full list of supplies needed)

Ways you can help:

  • Share this post – help us get the word out
  • Host a drive with your co-workers, neighbors, faith community, or friends
  • Make an in-kind donation of supplies
  • Host a packing party to assemble the supplies and backpacks
  • Make a donation to RESOURCE Build A Backpack
