School Supplies & Backpack Day
Help a Child Start School Right!
Your donation will bring a big smile to low-income Sunnyvale children getting ready for the new school year. On Backpack Day, each child will receive a brand new backpack stuffed with age-appropriate school supplies, plus a $30 gift certificate for a new pair of shoes to start the year on the right foot.
We welcome donations of new school supplies for grades K-12. Please download this flyer and bring your donation to Sunnyvale Community Services on Monday - Friday, from 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM.
Would you like to volunteer?
Packing backpacks is a very popular volunteer opportunity and we rely on our wonderful in-house volunteers and corporate groups to organize, pack and distribute the backpacks. The best way to volunteer with backpacks is to assist throughout the year on our food distribution program or have your company sign up for a food packing day. Learn more about our adult volunteer and group volunteer opportunities.
