Communities We Serve

"Backpacks and school supplies can have such an impact on students because it helps them feel equal to their peers. I can say from experience that’s really important, especially for recent immigrant 'newcomer' students." - Agency Contact, The Oakland Public Education Fund

Bridging the gap

Family Giving Tree serves as a bridge to joy and learning and can reach specific communities in our neighborhoods with the help of our incredible Agency Partners. We partner with over 250 social service agencies and others that are 501(c)3 organizations each Drive to make sure we can serve as many communities that might feel neglected here in the Bay Area.

How do we reach so many?

Uplifting those around us 

Qualifying schools serve a student population where over 80% of all enrolled students qualify for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). It is the responsibility of recipient schools to identify and distribute to those students most in need.

Recipients of the upcoming 2022-2023 Back-to-School Drive are listed by county below. *This list is updated frequently so please visit this page again. (List as of 7/18/2022)
