About Us

Providing Supplies To Enrich Lives 

 Backpacks for a Cause is a non-profit which donates school supplies to children in need. We strive to boost confidence, productivity, and good behavior through the power of a new backpack. Backpacks For a Cause was founded in the summer of 2021, and has since worked with food banks and shelters in four states around New England. There have also been a number of individual family donations for parents and schools that have reached out. 


A new backpack can help grapple with the common insecurity that arises from some classmates having more than others.  Backpacks For a Cause aims to alleviate some the anxiety that homeless children and teenagers have in their already stressful situations. Our donated backpacks are filled with necessary, new, and fun supplies, which give kids a fresh start and helps them begin the school year with confidence.
