Fifth Annual Ultimate Backpack Supply Drive

8 a.m. - 6 p.m. Aug. 11, 2022

The fifth annual Ultimate Backpack Supply Drive, presented by CoStar Group, has the biggest goal ever! We want to provide school backpacks and supplies for 50,000 K-12 students, which will directly benefit Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico counties, the cities of Richmond and Petersburg, and the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU. The VCU Alumni Richmond Chapter invites the community to help local students start the school year with the supplies they need to be successful in the classroom.

Interested in volunteering? Sign up for a shift.

Volunteer shifts are available throughout the day to assist with various tasks, including stuffing backpacks, sorting supplies and preparing shipments to the schools. 

You can also drop off donated supplies from 8 a.m.-6 p.m.

Needed school supplies:

  • Backpacks
  • #2 Pencils
  • Composition Notebooks
  • Glue Sticks
  • Highlighters
  • Markers
  • Index Cards
  • Erasers
  • Rulers
  • Colored Pencils
  • Crayons
  • Scissors (Round ended)
  • Pencil Pouches
