The Blue Ribbon Project's Backpacks of Love program provides backpacks directly to children going into care. Each backpack is gender and age appropriate. Each backpack is designed specifically for a child of a particular age. Below, you will find a list of each age and gender and what is included in a backpack for that child.
If you or your organization are building backpacks to donate, we have a huge favor to ask of you. Please print the page for the age and gender in which the backpack is being built. Then use that page to check off items you are placing within the backpack. Our volunteers will add items from the list that are not checked off. Lastly, leave that printed page inside of the backpack. This way we can easily inventory and label the backpack for the age you intended.
A few tips:
Several area businesses have offered to be drop off locations. You can drop off backpacks to our friends at the following locations. Please thank these businesses as they step up to help the community. They receive nothing in return and have offered to help these kids out of the kindness of their hearts. We thank them greatly for participating with and support The Blue Ribbon Project! Please keep an eye on this page as things continue to grow. If you have a business or organization and would like to be a drop off location, please contact us.View items...
