Dear Backpack Supporters,

 
Every year HOB puts on a Back-To-School Backpack Drive for families and students in need. We collect backpacks stuffed with schools supplies which get distributed to underserved, homeless and at-risk children in Greater Birmingham.

Our goal is to provide 1,500 completely filled, grade appropriate backpacks to be donated to 32 of our partner agencies. This is a great DIY (do it yourself) project that you can do at your school, church or office. All backpacks for city and county schools must be clear or mesh and cannot have ANY characters (example: Hello Kitty, Sponge Bob, etc.) this also includes any school supplies. Hands On Birmingham is also asking that ALL donated backpacks and supplies are gender neutral and categorized by elementary/middle school age and high school age. Starting in late July you should see lists at your favorite stores that detail what each grade needs.


The deadline to donate backpacks is August 4th. HOB keeps track of its donated backpacks, so please fill out the form below and bring it with your donation.
