Rise Has Your Backpack Drive


Close your eyes and picture yourself as a child on any first day of school. Remember how excited you were to open your new backpack that your mom let you handpick?  Remember opening your new lunchbox with your favorite cartoon character plastered across the front? Remember how excited you were to open that fresh box of crayons, sharpen a new pencil, write your name on the first clean page of a new notebook?  Wouldn’t every child love to have those cherished memories?

You personally can help a child create that special memory by donating school supplies directly or by making a generous donation to the Rise’s Backpack Drive.  Give now through our secure online form – it only takes a moment.

To date, 2,002 students and counting have benefitted from donations made by people just like you. The smiles you help put on a youngster’s face will create a lasting memory for you too.  Just looks at these faces!
