There is a severe shortage of school supplies throughout the nation. Teachers are supplying their classrooms out of their own pocket. This incredible program is a great way to make a difference within your community.
This incredible part of the program has the teams put together a stocked backpacks that will be delivered to underprivileged schools.
The program has three different parts:
- Backpacks for kids
- Energy packs to be given to students during testing days
- And…Supplies for teachers
SCHOOL PACKS are backpacks that your team will fill with school supplies, toys, and toiletries to be donated to children getting ready to back to school. The backpacks can also include a personalized note of encouragement to the child receiving the.
The backpacks contain items that most children need to during the year: paper, notebooks, highlighters, markers, crayons, hand sanitizer, tissue, lotion, note cards, glue stick.
In many of the local schools, backpacks are distributed throughout the school year because of the changing populations in the schools. Many of the lower income schools have a constant turnover of students. The backpacks will provide some financial relief to the children’s parents.
In the lower income schools, many of the students are not able to afford high protein snacks to keep their energy levels up during the state-mandated testing of students. Your group will assemble energy packs for the students. The packs will include items suggested by the schools – peanut butter, fruit snacks, water, and other items.
We will partner with local schools for your event and, at the end of the program, a representative from the benefiting school will be present to accept the donation and thank the group for their teamwork. This is a very popular, very rewarding event that will have a lasting effect on your team for years to come.

The group will pack boxes, decorate and write a message to the teachers to be presented to the school. Each of the boxes will have 30 of each item.
