Donate Today to the GIVE BACKpacks Campaign


Help students in need by donating to the 13th annual GIVE BACKpacks campaign to purchase backpacks and school supplies for MCPS students. 

For as little as $20, you can provide a student with a backpack filled with supplies including, paper, crayons, pencils/pens, a pencil sharpener, binders and folders.

Thousands of students are living in poverty and will need help accessing school supplies to be ready to learn at the start of school. MCPS places orders throughout the summer to be able to provide as many students as possible with a backpack and school supplies at the start of the school year. June, July and August are critical months to fundraise and place orders.

Thanks to the generosity of our community during the 2023-2024 campaign, the district provided more than 10,000 students with backpacks and supplies. 

Help spread the word about this campaign by sharing the campaign flyer below with colleagues, family, friends, your company and community members. Every donation helps serve a student in need.
