Coastside Community Backpack

Drive

Donate Volunteer

It is hard to think about the coming school year when we are just starting to enjoy our summers! To make sure that all the children in our community are ready for school and have what they need to learn, Holy Family Episcopal Church is partnering with Abundant Grace Coastside Worker, Coastside HOPE, Community Methodist Church, Coastside Lutheran Church, Coastisde Jewish Community, the Migrant Student Program at the Cabrillo School district, St. Vincent de Paul Society Our Lady of the Pillar, the Rotary club, the Coastside Mothers Club and other community groups to working together to collect school supplies and fill backpacks for local children who cannot afford them. Last year we provided over 300 children with backpacks. We expect a similar number or more this year. Please join us and pass this information on to other friends or coworkers whom you think would be interested in supporting our Coastside children.

Donate

First and foremost we need funds to buy backpacks and supplies If you would like to donate money, please either click on the donate button to donate via Paypal Or send checks to: Holy Family Episcopal Church P.O. Box 215 Half Moon Bay, CA 94019-0215 650-726-0506 Please indicate “BACKPACKS” on the memo line. Holy Family manages the money for the school backpack drive, 100% of the funds donated goes directly to this program to buy backpacks and school supplies.

Volunteer

We always need help as we prepare each year. This ranges from taking inventory of supplies we have on hand, to shopping for school supplies and more. We will also need help with stuffing the backpacks and distributing them. This year it will be quite different due to Covid-19 precautions. The stuffing and distribution will occur over several days to keep everyone, volunteer and recipient safe. We will be stuffing totes with school supplies from the 8th until the 12th of August. We will be distributing school supplies over two days this year to keep everyone safe. We also need volunteers to help staff on the 13th and 14th of August.
