"Supporting Our Schools" needs your help! 

Donate a school supply-filled backpack at a participating business near you. 

Drive Hubs are located throughout the Bay Area.  At any of these locations you can pick up a Backpack or Donation Tag. Once your backpack is filled, we ask that you return it, with the Tag attached, to the same location.

Can't make it to a Drive Hub to get a tag? Scroll down, print out the list of school supplies by grade level 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.  

The last day to drop off backpacks at these location is Friday, August 4th.
