Tools for School Success Backpack Drive
Providing school supplies annually to students served by Wilder
Through the annual Tools for School Success backpack drive, you help make sure that more than 2,000 students served by Wilder have school supplies. By providing backpacks and school supplies, children are better equipped to start the school year with the supplies they need to be focused on learning. We’ve been coordinating the annual Tools for School Success backpack drive since 2006. Even during a pandemic, we continue to partner with families to ensure young people served by Wilder have the tools they need to succeed in school.
Help us reach our goal to collect more than 2,000 backpacks full of school supplies by August 30, 2021!
As in previous years, we are partnering with Greater Twin Cities United Way, our supporters and community partners to provide backpacks to children served by Wilder. Our collective support for families with school-aged children ensures they're ready for school with a new backpack and school supplies.
For every $28 donated, you help one student get prepared with a backpack and school supplies. We are no longer accepting donations of filled backpacks. However, you can still make financial contributions to support the backpack drive!
