Backpacks for Back to School

Giving kids the tools they need to learn

Help area students start the school year off right with donated school supplies.  

The program, Backpacks for Back to School, is supported by five Anne Arundel County public libraries. Requested supplies include backpacks, binders, erasers, folders, glue sticks, hand sanitizer, markers, notebooks, pencils, rulers and scissors. 

All donated supplies go to the Sharing Foundation, a local nonprofit whose mission is to support working families who may not qualify for government assistance. The Sharing Foundation distributes the goods to Anne Arundel County teachers and counselors because, “who knows better than teachers, which child truly needs supplies.” 

Donate school supplies from August 6 through September 9 in Annapolis at Monarch Academy; Discoveries: The Library at the Mall; Eastport; Edgewater; or Severna Park Libraries.
