West Foundation Communities Backpack Drive

Support students leaving homelessness by filling a backpack with school supplies for a child in the Foundation Communities’ Children HOME Initiative program. 

The program provides affordable housing and wrap-around services for families coming out of homelessness or families at risk of becoming homeless. One way we can support these families is by providing backpacks filled with supplies to alleviate the burden of purchasing school supplies and offer students encouragement as they start the school year. 

We’ll have cards in our Connection area that include supplies lists and instructions for writing an encouraging note to the student receiving the backpack as they begin the school year. Each card corresponds to a specific child served by Foundation Communities.

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

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