How to Get Involved

North Penn Strong Community Build-A-Bag

Every year, many families in the North Penn community need help providing basic school supplies for their children. As we approach the first day of school after a year unlike any other, it's no doubt that things will look different this year at school. During these uncertain times, our families in need are counting on us now more than ever to help them adapt. To continue our efforts in making sure every student has equal access to a North Penn education, we will once again be holding our backpack and school supply drive.

In partnership with the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Montgomery County, and with the help of our community, our goal is to provide 175 filled backpacks to be privately and anonymously given to students by school staff at the beginning of the school year and throughout as needed.

To ensure enough time to sort and inventory supplies, fill backpacks & distribute to families, please note that the drive ends on Monday, August 16!
