School Supply Drive

Donation protected
My name is Yashica, and I've been running this school supply drive with my sister, Tanishqa, for the past 6 years. This year marks the 7th year of our drive, and my goal is to donate 300 backpacks filled with school supplies to children in need.

I remember starting this drive back in 3rd grade with just 25 backpacks and a dream: I wanted to make sure that more children have access to school supplies so that they can learn properly in school. 9-year-old me would've never imagined how much it would grow over the years. However, with the support of compassionate donors like you, we've been able to help hundreds of children in our community start the school year right with the tools they need to succeed.

Unfortunately, the recent pandemic and inflation have made it more difficult for some families to buy school supplies. Because of this, your contribution can make a huge impact! For just $21, you can help put a smile on a child's face and give them the school supplies they need to succeed in school.

Our goal this year is an ambitious one: we plan to provide 300 backpacks filled with school supplies to help children in need in our community. We try our hardest to select quality items and to pack each school supply in a careful way. From the color of the backpack to the brand of pencils we choose, every detail matters to us and to the children.

By donating to our drive, you're not only helping to provide essential school supplies, but you're also showing these children that their community cares about them and wants to see them succeed. As someone who has seen the impact of this firsthand, I can tell you that your donation will make a real difference in the life of a child and put a smile on their face.

Thank you for your support, we can't do this without you!

We're helping kids learn, one backpack at a time.
