Backpack & School Supply Drive

Our Club kids are getting back to in-person learning this September and need school supplies! Donations by August 15 are greatly appreciated so that we can distribute stuffed backpacks to our Club members before the start of the school year.

Here are three ways to help!

1) Purchase new backpacks and school supplies at the retailer of your choice. Click here for our list of desired supplies. You can ship to our Clubhouse at 253 Columbus Avenue, New Haven, CT 06519 or drop them off Monday – Friday, 9 am – 5 pm.

2) Purchase new backpacks and school supplies from Amazon. Our Wish List can be found here.

3) Make a donation using our form and we’ll do the shopping for you!

For large donations of school supplies or backpacks, we can arrange pick-up and delivery and distribution.

Would you please help us get our community youth back to learning with the tools they need to be prepared for the classroom?

Thank you for helping us do whatever it takes to build great futures for New Haven kids!
