Berkeley Back To School Drive

Raised by 28 people in 26 months
Hi Everyone!

I am putting together a "Back to School" drive for less fortunate and low income students (K-12) in Berkeley Schools. The goal is to help at least 100 students get everything they need for the new school year, so that way they can be successful. Not to mention, it feels good to go to class, KNOWING you have everything you need.

I made this page for those who are not close enough to Berkeley to make it to the donation station or aren't available on the dates of the drop off! 100% of proceeds will go directly to a Berkeley student's school supplies.  

Drop off dates are July 30 & August 6 from 10-12pm at San Pablo Park in Berkeley!

Examples: Pens, Pencils, paper, calculators, notebooks, crayons, colored pencils, protractors, hand sanitizer, flash drives, etc.

Even if you don't have children, you can still help out one in need! $1, $5, $10 can go a very long way.

Thank you in advance!

Hey Everyone,
We had such a great turn out yesterday but we still have so much more to give. So we are going to do another give away next Sunday and hopefully bring more kids out. We received a lot more money than expected so we definitely need to get everything out. Nonetheless, I wanted to share a couple pictures with you all to show you who you helped. Thank you again.

So happy to support your project - I remember the moment of going back to school as a child was exciting in part because I had a new binder, paper and pens - and that excitement can help kids stick to learning.

Awesome work, and you did it in a minute. You had a vision, so you just made it happen! Your "let's just do this" attitude is an inspiration to the rest of us.
