Backpack Drive

Posted on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at 7:30 AM by Malden Homepage

Backpack Drive
5/15/2017 to 08/04/2017      
Our children need your help to succeed in school!
Housing Families' Annual Backpack Drive is back! May 15th through August 4th, we will collect new backpacks and school supplies. Your generous support will provide a filled backpack to each child in our program attending school and will help support our programs throughout the year.
A note on gift cards: our families and programs greatly appreciate gift cards as we can often use them to provide for the very specific needs that a family or child might have. If you are giving a backpack along with a gift card, we ask that you please give the gift cards in a separate envelope so they are not lost or overlooked in a backpack pocket. Thanks!
919 Eastern Avenue, Malden
For questions or to schedule a pickup, contact Patty at or (781) 322-9119 x115

Housing Families Inc. was the featured agency at Building Impact’s NonGala Event that took place last week - an annual event dedicated to strengthening communities and connecting companies and individuals with volunteer and donation opportunities. During the event, Housing Families Inc successfully previewed its annual backpack drive to support children within the greater Boston area who are impacted by homelessness. Attendees were eager to learn about ways they can help support children get one step closer to realizing their full academic potential.
