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 $40 gift certificate for a new pair of shoes to start the year. 

Donate Supplies

We welcome in-person donations of new school supplies for grades K-12. You are welcome to bring your donation to Sunnyvale Community Services on Monday - Friday, from 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM. If you have a question about donating or would like more information, please contact us at

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. If you have a question about volunteering or would like more information, please contact us at
