Back-to-School Backpack Program

Back To School Back Pack   Logo

From August 1 to September 30, the Club accepts donations of new school supplies to equip kids with the essential tools they need for success in the new school year. Similar to the Holiday Hamper Program, donors can choose to support one child or provide an array of back-to-school items to help support children and youth.

In-Kind Tax receipts can be issued for newly donated back-to-school supplies if they are accompanied with a point of sale receipt outlining the cost of the donated items. 

Some examples of new items the Clubs accepts are included below:

• Knapsacks (grades 4-12)
• Pens
• Paper
• Markers
• Pencil Crayons
• Whiteout
• Notebooks
• Scotch Tape
• Planners

In most cases a charitable tax receipt can be issued for an In-Kind gift. Talk to us to see if your gift qualifies for a tax receipt.
