Donate Supplies for Children Going Back to School

Donate Schools Supplies for KC Children

1,000 Backpacks for 1,000 Students


Stuff The Backpack Drive, hosted by Synergy Services, is helping Kansas City K-12 school children get the supplies they need to start school this fall. To help out, you can donate money, school supplies and volunteer time — or provide all three.

The suggested donation of $10 purchases one backpack stuffed with school supplies. Donate on the nonprofit’s Facebook page or website. If you decide to donate, please do so before Aug. 7, 2020.

The Math is Simple
$10 = 1 backpack
1 backpack = 1 prepared student

You Can Also Donate School Supplies Directly

To donate new school supplies, please schedule a socially-distanced donation with Claire Sundermeyer by email or phone 913-259-9634.

Needed supplies include: Markers • Scissors • Pocket Folders • Spiral and Composition Notebooks • Calculators • Pencil Pouches • Pink Erasers • Colored Pencils • 24 Crayon Box • Glue Sticks • Pencils and Pens • 3” Binders • Looseleaf Paper • Backpacks • Highlighters


Volunteer to Stuff Backpacks

Another way to help children get ready for the school year is to volunteer. From stuffing backpacks to passing out school resources, come help the Synergy staff at its Back to School Fair on August 14, 2020.
