Every child deserves a great education. They’re counting on heroes like you for that opportunity. A new backpack full of school supplies truly can have a profound impact on a child’s learning experience and it can reduce stress for our youth and families. You can be a Youth Villages Backpack Hero by donating backpacks filled with school supplies or raising crucial funds to support a child in your community.

Ways to Participate

1. Donate:

Donate to help us provide school supplies and back packs to the 180 youth in our Georgia community based and residential programs.



2. Engage:

Engage your company/organization by hosting a Backpack Heroes Work Place Campaign or Donation Drive for contributions, need items and gift cards.


3. Shop:

Choose items from our wishlist and send or drop-off items directly to us.



4. Start a Fundraiser:

Start your own fundraising page! By clicking the fundraise button you can start your own campaign with friends, family, or co-workers to raise critical funds for kids in your community. OR include your own children and their classmates to get them motivated and inspire them to have an impact on their own community and school. It is a great way to give back and encourage others to become a Backpack Hero, too!
