Make 2021 the year of the "Backpack Comeback!"
Donate a school supply-filled backpack at a participating business near you.
Public Backpack Drive Hubs are located throughout the Bay Area. At any of these locations, you can pick up a Backpack Tag and then go shopping for a backpack and the listed supplies. Once your backpack is filled, we ask that you return it, with the tag attached, to the same location.
What is a backpack tag? Backpack tags include a final list of items that go into a backpack donation! We have THREE types of backpacks tags per grade (they're color-coded, too!): K-1st Grade (blue), 2-5th Grade (orange), 6-12th Grade (purple).
NOTE: These drop sites are for use by individuals and families and are only able to receive a maximum of 5-6 backpacks per person. For larger volumes, please bring them directly to our Warehouse – click here for details.
Can't make it to a hub to get a tag? Scroll down, print out the list of school supplies and backpack guidelines, and have fun shopping! Drop the backpack at any of the locations listed.
Please, no RED or BLUE backpacks.
Please do not add additional items to the pack. Bonus items can create "backpack envy" and ruin the joy of the moment.
