Why Colorado Gives is Important to Us...Especially This Year!

We know how lucky we are to be a part of a community that supports their own! Backpack Society started by serving kids at 1 school, ThunderRidge High School. Now, thanks to community support, 3 1/2 years later we are partnered with 45 schools. But, we've maxed out our current space, and taking on more schools has become logistically challenging.

This year Colorado Gives donations will help to fund our expansion into the space next door. With additional room, we can take on more schools in Douglas County and Littleton Public School Districts. Money raised will go towards purchasing food, shelving, tables, refrigerators, and freezers for the new space.

Our expansion will allow us to host larger corporate and community groups for volunteer and give-back events. Donations will also fund food for our weekend student bag and family box programs as we partner with more schools.

Every dollar helps reach our goal & every dollar is amplified by the Colorado Gives Foundation! Don't forget, that your donation is 100% tax deductible and able to be matched by your employer. Our goal is to raise $30,000 during Colorado Gives!
