"To Fill a Backpack" Accepting Requests For 2019/2020 School Year

We are now accepting backpack requests for the 2019/2020 School year. We will be distributing in the Bradford, Cameron, Lycoming, McKean, Potter and Tioga Counties. If you are not located in one of those Counties, please do not submit a request. We do not ship backpacks. And we will stress it again this year…Please do not request a backpack because it is free…request a backpack because you need it. We will never run out of backpacks thanks to the generous donations from our local communities but those that take them because they are free we feel is not the right thing to do. Anyone that is interested in donating supplies or making a monetary donation can contact us directly and we will arrange to pick it up or let you know where you are able to drop it off. Please mail monetary donations to the address shown below. Both supply and monetary donations accepted year round.

As in the past years we will once again be stressing, “if you request a backpack you must make arrangements to pick it up because we will not be delivering” due to time constraints, Volunteer availability, gas prices, etc. We currently have Backpack Liaisons located in the Galeton, Emporium and Smethport area and are actively looking for others in the Wellsboro, Mansfield, Bradford. If you would be interested in helping out please contact us by email or phone. The only thing you would be responsible for is picking up the backpacks for your area on the day we pack, currently scheduled for August 10 at the Roulette Fire Hall. You would then take them back to your area and contact the people who requested them so they can arrange to pick them up from you. All pickups would be at your time and availability discretion.

Anyone that is in need of a backpack must fill in the form located at the link below. “Almost everyone” now has availability to the internet either through his or her cell phone, at home or even through a friend. We are trying to streamline requests to keep them all in one place to avoid notes here and there that get misplaced, etc. As years go on and our numbers grow, we want to be sure that we do not miss anyone so we ask you to use the form. If you have no access to fill in the form please call the number below with your contact information and we will call you back. No phone calls accepted after 8pm.

Please fill out the form located at this link: https://forms.gle/iv4aBTKGwNvgxvAw6

Anyone who is interested in helping pack backpacks on August 10 at the Roulette Fire Hall please feel free to show up at 10am. We generally take about 2 hours to get everything packed and cleaned up so it is a very short time to donate your time on a Saturday. Anyone that has requested backpacks please feel free to stop in after 11am to pick them up if you can. We ask that our location Liaisons come around the same time if possible or at least by noon to pick up their area’s backpacks. If you are not able to make it that day please let us know when you are able and we will arrange to be available to accommodate those times.

Thank you to everyone that has donated this year and in past years to help keep our program going. When we started 11 years ago, we never dreamed it would turn in to what it has. Over the past 11 years, we have donated 1000’s of backpacks to Families in need. We have been able to give that little boost and help cut some of their costs of starting their Child/Children in to a new school year. As long as we continue to receive the support we will continue to do what we started the program for…”To help send children to school with the supplies they need”.
