Back-to-School Backpack Drive Through August 5, 2016

July 12, 2016

The start of the new school year is an exciting time for everyone but it is also difficult for the vast majority of our students because their parents can’t afford to get them backpacks and school supplies. Just $50 provides one youth with a fully loaded backpack for the 2016-2017 school year.

You can help the lowest-income families and students prepare for the new school year by donating to our Backpack and School Supply Drive that is running through Friday, August 5, 2016. We’re giving the supplies to our highest-need students in August.
It’s easy and effective to help, whether you donate online or in person:
100% of the online donations from this campaign will go to purchasing backpacks and school supplies.

See the school supply wish list for pre-school through high school:
Any direct donation of school supplies, from backpacks, to notebooks, to pencils, is a tremendous investment in low-income students so they can succeed this year and into the future.
You can drop off backpacks and school supplies to one of our designated centers:
Hollywood FamilySource Center 1075 N. Western Ave., Suite 110, Los Angeles, CA 90029. Phone: 323.836.0055
YPI Pacoima Center 12502 Van Nuys Blvd., Suite 101, Pacoima, CA 91331. Phone: 818.899.5550
Thank you for making the world a better place, one student at a time!
