Mission BackpackOrphan Outreach’s Mission Backpack campaign provides orphans with a new backpack and the message that they are not alone. Individuals and groups can easily get involved in this mission project by:
- DONATING for the PURCHASE of BACKPACKS and SCHOOL SUPPLIES.
- Collecting new backpacks and/or school supplies for Orphan Outreach to distribute to vulnerable children in schools and orphanages around the world.
Why donate backpacks and school supplies?Education is something every child needs for a bright future. For an orphan or vulnerable child, who has no family to rely on, it is their only hope. Orphan Outreach is encouraging individuals and groups to donate and/or collect new backpacks and school supplies.
What kind of backpacks are you collecting?We need every size and type of backpack, messenger style bags and tote bags. Items donated need to be new.
What school supplies do you need?Unfortunately paper products are very expensive to ship but these other items are always desperately needed in the orphanages we work in:
- Pencils & Erasers
- Crayons or washable markers
- Pencil case (Heavy Duty with zipper)
- Colored pencils
- Blue or Black medium point pens
