2019 Back to School Campaign

*This year’s Back to School Campaign has concluded – but you can still support the work we do to help families by making a donation*

For many of our program participants with school-age kids, purchasing backpacks and school supplies can be cost prohibitive. They need to focus on paying for basic living expenses like food and rent. Please consider supporting our families in one of the following ways this summer!

Donate funds:

Make a financial donation to support our programming that serves families and children

Donate Backpacks:

Help children in our programs by donating backpacks full of school supplies! Volunteer your time to lead a backpack drive in your community. Gather your friends, co-workers and /or family to help gather donations or purchase items and pack backpacks. (see a full list of supplies needed)

Share our Message:

Help us get the message out about our needs this summer! Please share this information (https://avivomn.org/donate/back-to-school-support/) within your community and across your social media networks. @AvivoMN #AvivoBackpacks
