Every year, United Way Bay Area hosts a Back-To-School drive to gather essential backpacks and school supplies to help prepare youth who can’t afford them for the new school year. With your help, we are aiming to donate 4,000 backpacks with new school supplies to Bay Area youth and schools that need them.
For every $30 you donate, one youth will return to school fully equipped and on a pathway to success!
This year’s backpack drive will support the following Bay Area agencies:
100 Black Men, Berkeley Food Pantry, Bill Wilson Center, Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency, Catholic Charities San Francisco/Marin/San Mateo, CityServe of the Tri-Valley, Community Action Marin, Compass Family Services, Covenant House California, Martha’s Kitchen, Skyline College, SparkPoint Contra Costa, St. Joseph’s Family Center, St. Vincent de Paul of San Mateo County, The Union City Council, Tri-Valley Haven, WeHOPE, and Winter Nights Family Shelter
