Get Involved

We believe that together, we can do more.  Join us in helping children feel prepared for school.

Create your own fundraising event.
Host a dinner party, organize a bake sale, car wash, karaoke contest or something totally different – we encourage thinking outside of the box.

Become a Sponsor of the Backpack Run.
Show your customers and clients that you are making a difference in our community by sponsoring the Backpack Run.

Organize a backpack collection luncheon, picnic dinner at your home.
Give it an international theme such as “A taste of the world” featuring cuisine from around the globe. Ask friends to bring their favorite ethnic dish along with a backpack for a child in need.

Involve your group.
Does your school’s Key Club need a great service project? Designate Global Backpack Project as your service project for the year. Ask your book club, school or business to organize a backpack collection drive. We can assist you with communication materials to share with your friends, members and co-workers.

Help us raise awareness about our efforts.
We can provide information for you to distribute to your audience such as an article for your company or church newsletter about how to get involved. Just let us know what kind of communication materials you need and we’ll help get the message out.

Donate your professional services.
Make an in-kind donation by volunteering your professional skills. We’re 100 percent volunteer-fueled and always appreciate the help of talented writers, designers, fundraisers, photographers, multi-media experts, and community organizers.
