Why Backpacks?

Why backpacks? The average cost of all the essential school supplies including the backpack is $122.

With the increasing pressure inflation has on everyone’s budget, the effects of current events are felt first and hardest by those families we serve in the Bay Area. We know that 2022 will be ever-challenging as families work to meet financial obligations. This cost of living will leave many children feeling unprepared as they walk into school without the essential school supplies.

Your past generosity has helped uplift these young members of our community and shift their mindset to one of possibility. This year our goal is to provide 26,000 Bay Area students with supply-filled backpacks and help them see their potential. You are a crucial partner in Family Giving Tree’s work. Thank you.
