Backpack School Supply Collection 2024

Backpack School Supply Collection 2024

From now until August 11, it’s time for the Backpack School Supply Collection!  We hope to once again be able to supply stuffed backpacks to students in the Chester and Upper Darby Communities. Last year, 397 backpacks were filled by 17 faith communities in Delaware County.  Here are 3 ways you can support the collection this year:

One way to make a contribution is to use the links below to an Amazon Wishlist – School Supplies. Place an order and it will be shipped directly to the crew that will assemble the backpacks.
