2 girls with their backpacks & making a peace sign
School is underway and thanks to our combined efforts, Family Giving Tree distributed 25,306 supply-filled backpacks! Together we exceeded our goal yet again! For these past couple of years, the Drive has looked very different: fewer people helping in the warehouse at a single time, contactless drop-offs, and the majority of our donations happening via our Virtual Giving Tree.
But our mission remained the same, to equip young people with the tools they need to participate in school and do assignments and homework. Because of our efforts, 25,306 Bay Area students made a backpack comeback; starting the first day with the confidence to learn and grow.
Thank you for your support and for investing in the future of our community’s children.
