Northwest World Relief Backpack Drive

Support refugee families served by World Relief by providing backpacks filled with school supplies for the upcoming school year!

Navigating public school systems can be a substantial challenge for refugees fleeing war and persecution, and the cost of school supplies can put a significant financial burden on families with multiple children. We invite you to support these families by purchasing a backpack for a refugee student and filling the bag with school supplies. We’ll have cards in our Connection area that include supplies lists and instructions for writing an encouraging note to the student as they begin the school year. Each card represents a child served by World Relief.

If you’d like to get started now, please fill out the form by clicking the button below, and we’ll send you instructions for next steps.

Please note that all donated items are delivered directly to World Relief and are not charitable contributions to The Austin Stone.
