Ultimate Backpack Supply Drive

5 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Aug. 15, 2018

The Ultimate Backpack program provides students in the local community with brand-new backpacks filled with school supplies to ensure they start their school year on the right foot. This program supports Richmond-area schools, neighborhood resource centers and nonprofit organizations. Our goal is to provide more than 5,000 children living in the Richmond metropolitan area with backpacks filled with grade-appropriate school supplies.

Ways to give:

Drop off donated backpacks and supplies from the 2018 supply list (see below) from 5-8:30 p.m. Aug. 15 at Veil Brewing.

If your organization wishes to order pre-assembled backpacks with school supplies, you can order them directly from the approved vendor. The cost is $7.35 per backpack, including supplies. Please email nguyenth6@vcu.edu for more information.
