Why a Backpack Drive?

Children supported by D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s have faced a number of challenges in their lives – some as hard as abuse and neglect, some living with foster parents and starting new schools, some struggling with mental health, and more.

Each year, our agency partners work with the community to provide backpacks and supplies to kids in our foster care, adoption, residential treatment, family preservation, and behavioral health programs.

With your help, we can alleviate some of the back to school stress for children and families at DABSJ.

Monetary donations of any amount to go toward the Backpack Drive. Funds will go toward supplies and additional needs – making a big difference as children start the new school year.

Questions?

Dropoff deadline is Friday August 11

DABSJ is inclusive and welcoming – from our team members, to the children we serve, to the families we license as foster parents. You could play a part in providing homes and hope for children who need a place to be themselves.
