This year is the Backpack Comeback. With the challenges faced this past year, Family Giving Tree is determined to help Bay Area students make this year ‘their year’. Whether children will be back in the classroom or continue learning from home, having the correct school supplies are essential for participating and learning. With the addition of earbuds and extra notebooks, Family Giving Tree works with the teachers to ensure the supplies are exactly what students need.
Our goal is to provide 23,500 students with supply-filled backpacks through our partner schools. To achieve this, we are working to ensure the public can safely volunteer their time in our warehouse. Some precautions include smaller volunteer groups, hygiene equipment, social distancing, and the need to show proof of vaccination to work inside the building.
All of these will help keep staff and community members safe while giving back and providing backpacks.
