2023 Backpack Program

Join us in helping children show up at school ready to learn! School supplies can be cost prohibitive for many of our program participants, affecting the budget of essentials like rent or food. Fisherman’s Mark collects donations of school supplies and fills backpacks with needed items so students have what they need from Day 1. 

How it works


Fisherman’s Mark receives the school supply lists from our local schools then shares the list with our community. Donors provide the supplies in a number of different ways. Volunteers fill backpacks with needed school supplies per grade, and our program participants pick them up on Distribution Day.
