Donate a backpack or sponsor a student

Mon, 28 Aug, 2017 7:00 AM - 7:00 PM
Time Zone: America/Los_Angeles
Local Time: Mon, 28 Aug, 2017 7:00 AM - 7:00 PM

We need to provide a backpack (with supplies) for every child entering K-12th grade, in every program here at YWCA. We need help getting almost 2,500 backpacks.

To provide a backpack, pick a grade and a gender of the recipient, purchase a new backpack and fill it with grade-level school supplies. Most stores will have the list by grades of what should be included. We are always short on cool teen backpacks, or pink little girl ones, so both equally important. These need to be dropped on Monday, August 28, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Consider sponsoring a student! You will be matched with an individual child to take care of all the student’s needs. You would be responsible for getting their backpack and all their supplies, in addition to getting them a new outfit for the first day of school.

So many of these kids are wearing the wrong size shoes, or clothes with holes in them, so let's outfit them with a new outfit so their first step into school is a comfortable one. One outfit equals: 1 top, 1 bottom, 1 sweater, 1 pair of shoes, socks, and underwear.
