Boys & Girls Club of Mercer County, NJ

Run a Backpack Drive

Running a backpack drive for the Boys & Girls Club extended day learning program is a fun and rewarding community service project for your school, company, civic or faith organization. Backpack drives encourage people to donate backpacks and school supplies that ensure our Club kids start each school year off with the proper materials needed to excel.

Backpack drives create positive awareness for your organization, support the education systems in your surrounding areas and our community youth. 

To Organize and Run a Backpack Drive:

  1. Obtain approval from your organization's leader.
  2. Designate a Backpack Drive Coordinator.
  3. Pick a date for Drop-off of supplies/backpacks.
  4. Publicize the event to your target donors.
  5. Secure volunteers to help out with your Backpack Drive.
  6. Contact Reggie Coleman to arrange a day/time to drop off your backpacks!
