& Toys Drive 


We collect toys and household essentials for families we service during the holiday seasons.    


The Backpack Project, Inc. is always looking for organizations, groups, families, and individuals to donate items to the drive, to hold toy drives in their respective companies, or to volunteer at our holiday parties where these gifts are distributed. 


Summer Camp 




Our week-long summer camp, held during the month of August, for the kids who participate in our Backpack Buddies mentoring program. 


The theme-inspired camp gives the students the opportunity to continue working with us through the summer.

"Volunteering at The Backpack Project has CHANGED MY LIFE....."

Serving as a mentor for 5 years with The Back Pack Project,Inc. Mentoring has been an astounding experience, positive impact and rewarding journey! 


This blessing has afforded me an opportunity to interact and interface with children of various ethnicity and for the betterment of children to read, write routinely, not get involved in criminal activities; to maximize their potential, become productive citizens and have a purpose in their lives to help others and to develop and practice healthy wholesome lifestyles.
