Backpack Donation Drive!

June 1 @ 12:00 am - June 20 @ 11:59 pm

Backpacks are coming for our StreetWise kids to get ready to head Back-To-School!  

Wow! where does the time go?  School starts for Gwinnett and surrounding counties the first week of August.  Each year, StreetWise Georgia provides Backpacks for our clients’ kids to help alleviate some of the nervousness by providing a new backpack with the items on each student’s supply list.

Last year we provided over 400 students with backpacks and school supplies, and this year we are aiming for 600 students to receive a backpack.   We will begin to collect backpack and school supply donations on June 1, 2022, to have our Back To School Celebration on July 18th & 19th, 2022.
Would you like to help? Contact us at volunteer@streetwisegeorgia.org to get on our collection calendar!

If you can’t have a backpack drive but would still like to be a part of the event, you can help a child get ready for school by donating the cost of a filled Backpack.  It is easy!  The price of a new backpack filled with the necessary supplies to help a Pre-K/Kindergarten child is as little as $40.00, an Elementary School child $50.00, and for a High School student $60.00.

Just click on the Donate Today! Button at StreetWiseGeorgia.org website and in the ‘Add special instructions to the seller’ field, you can note which child grade level you wish to donate a filled backpack.  You can also send donations via mail to:  StreetWise Georgia   1770 Cedars Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30045.

Thank you for your generous support & you are making a difference in a child’s life.
