Help us give kids the supplies they need to succeed!
Every dollar makes a difference.
Tampa's Annual Backpack to School Supply Drive
Let's inspire a love for learning!
When kids have new school supplies of their own:
- Grades, classroom behavior, and engagement improve
- Self-esteem increases
- Attitudes toward school and learning strengthen
Let's get kids the tools they need to succeed! Donate to the Annual "Backpack to School" backpack drive.
Just $10 Buys a Backpack
Every year, we raise money to buy one of the most expensive items on a back-to-school list —backpacks!
All proceeds — 100% of donations — go to buying backpacks that will be distributed to kids in need in the Tampa Bay area through Metropolitan Ministries #BackpacksofHope program and other local non-profits.
