Backpacks to School 2024

As the school year winds down, we are gearing up for our 2024 Backpacks to School initiative. Each summer, The Sharing Shelf launches this program to provide Westchester’s under-resourced children and teens with new backpacks filled with grade-appropriate school supplies. With inflation impacting many families, especially those with lower incomes, we anticipate demand will remain high and we want to be ready to meet their needs.Your support is critical.

There are countless ways to get involved:

Donate money: “Buy” a backpack for a child or teen by contributing to this initiative.

Add your business as a drop-site: Collect new school supplies with our provided boxes and flyers.

Fill backpacks: At work, home, or with your camp, friends, or neighbors. We’ll provide a packing list so you can shop and fill your own backpacks.
