Backpack Drive


Backpack Drive

16 August, 2017 at 6:00 - 7:00 pm 6301 Greentree Rd, Bethesda, MD 20817, USA

Join The National Center for Children and Families (NCCF) in our annual Backpack Drive when we collect new backpacks and school supplies to prepare our students for the upcoming school year! We will stuff the backpacks at our community event, Backpacks & Brownies (see below) so please bring your backpacks unstuffed. Click here to view the supplies needed for each grade level. You are welcome to bring a backpack and supplies, or whatever you can contribute!

Donate Supplies


Donations of new backpacks and new school supplies will be accepted until Friday, August 11, 2017. For the grade supplies list, please click here. Contact Jermaine Lemons at or (301) 365-4480 x 109 or for more information.

Host Your Own Drive


Hosting your own backpack drive to benefit young scholars with NCCF is an easy and fun way to give back to the community. For many families in NCCF’s programs, sending their children to school with a backpack full of supplies is simply not an option – that is where you can help! By collecting and donating school supplies, you can give a young child the tools they need to succeed.
