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 Coastside Hope and working with a number of Coastside organizations including: Abundant Grace Coastside Worker, the National Charity League Coastside Chapter, the Half Moon Bay Library, the Friends of the Library, Community Methodist Church, Coastside Lutheran Church, Coastside Jewish Community, St. Vincent de Paul Society Our Lady of the Pillar, the Rotary club, the Coastside Women’s Club, the Coastside Mothers Club and other community groups to raise funds, purchase school supplies and backpacks for local children who cannot afford them. Last year we provided a record 477 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.

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. The stuffing and distribution will occur over several days to make it easier on parents to pick up the backpacks with children. The stuffing will occur at the Coastside Hope warehouse Saturday July 30, Sunday July 31st and Monday August 1st (if needed). We will set up the warehouse in the late afternoon and early evening of Friday July 29th. The distribution will occur at Coastside Hope’s office in El Granada on Wednesday the 3rd and Thursday the 4th If you are interested in volunteering please follow this link and fill out the form.
