We will need approximately 1,400 of these backpack kits for local refugee students.
This is a great project for Eagle Scouts, service groups, and workplace or neighborhood projects. In order to ensure donated backpacks will last students through the entire school year, we will only be accepting new backpacks- no used backpacks or school supplies, please. Kits will be collected from July 8th-31st.

Please note: Due to the large nature of this project we do not have space in our sharehouse before July 8th.

Donate diapers- sizes 3, 4, 5, & 6 to support refugee families in need. This is great to pair with a baby wipes donation. This is a great community project or Eagle Scout project! We can only accept disposable diapers and they must be in the original, unopened packaging.
Donate wipes to support refugee families in need. We accept any brand or size as long as they are unopened.
Refugee families are often large and that means a lot of laundry each week! Support these families by donating 100-120 ounce bottles of liquid laundry detergent.Delivery Location View Images
