Fill a backpack and fulfill a need

Thank you for your interest in APAH’s 2019 – 2020 backpack donation program. Each year we reach out to the community to ask for filled backpacks for APS students who call an APAH rental community home. Each year, generous donors like you respond to help us meet the need.

From kindergarten through 12th grade, students need basic school supplies that many families cannot afford to buy. Our goal is to ensure that every student who calls an APAH community home has the supplies they need to begin the school year.

How does it work?

  1. Choose a grade level (K-12) and fill a backpack (or 2!) with supplies from the list.
  2. Email Julie Booth (or call 571.800.6462) to share your backpack donation commitment.
  3. Drop off your filled backpack at the First Presbyterian Church (across Carlin Springs Road from APAH’s headquarters) only on designated dates and times when APAH staff and volunteers will be at the church: Thursday, July 25th, 3 – 7PM or Friday, July 26th, 10AM – 2PM
    Please Note: the address to the church is 601 N Vermont St., Arlington, however backpacks will be accepted at the back entrance. Enter the parking lot from N Carlin Springs Road and look for a sign on the back door.

You can also help by sharing this donation opportunity with your neighbors, employer, faith community, social networks, or even passersby on the street!

Have more questions? Please email Julie Booth, our Volunteer Program Manager (or call 571-800-6462).
