Fill A Backpack

Fill A Backpack provides brand new backpacks filled with grade-appropriate school supplies to children in need to maximize their academic potential.

Join A Precious Child and support the Fill A Backpack program. Together, let’s ensure that every child steps into their classroom on the first day of school equipped with the supplies they need to succeed.

The first day sets the tone for the entire academic year. It’s not just about having a backpack and supplies; it’s about giving every child an equal chance to excel, to feel confident, and to thrive.

By supporting Fill A Backpack, you’re not just providing backpacks and supplies. Fill A Backpack breaks down barriers, empowering young minds, and fostering a culture of opportunity for all.

How it Works

Our Community Comes Together to Collect School Supplies

A Precious Child’s community of supporters host collection drives, donate brand new backpacks and supplies and raise funds. Volunteers come to A Precious Child and fill backpacks! 

We provide backpacks filled with supplies to children in need before the first day of school.

Through our Empowerment Resource Center and Agency Partners, we ensure every child gets a backpack filled with school supplies so they can start the school year feeling confident and prepared to succeed academically.
