How to Get Involved

Build-A-Bag Supply Lists

Below you will find supply lists with items that will be included in donated backpacks. These lists have been developed and reviewed by teachers and administrators. Please note that items donated that are not on this list will likely not be used in this drive. For this reason, we ask that you do your best to stick to the lists provided below when purchasing donations.


Where to Drop Off School Supply Donations

School supplies can be dropped off at the NPSD Educational Services Center, located at 401 E. Hancock St. Lansdale, PA 19446. Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Donation bins will be located inside the vestibule of the main entrance, so you will not need to ring the doorbell to enter the building. To adhere to social distancing regulations, we ask that all donations are placed in this designated area.
