North Penn Strong Community Build-A-Bag

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. There are a lot of factors to ensure students can be successful in school, but money shouldn't be one of them. All students should have access to basic supplies so they can come to school each day prepared to do their best. 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 225 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 Thursday, August 11!
