Buy a shirt, feed a child!

  • Check out our t-shirts!  We will be selling these during the months of October and March and $5 from each purchase will go to BackPack Beginnings.  Get a cool shirt and feed a child for a weekend!

Help us collect items!

  • Collect items of need for BackPack Beginnings in lieu of presents at your next birthday party.
  • Make your own fleece blanket for us. Kits can be found at Michaels or JoAnn’s or instructions can be found here.

Help us raise funds!

  • Hold your own fundraiser. Get creative! Let your little philanthropist hold a lemonade stand!

Make a stock donation!

  • We gratefully accept stock donations.  Making a gift of stock gives you the chance to avoid capital gains taxes and receive a charitable income tax donation while helping us further our mission. BackPack Beginnings prefers to receive undesignated gifts, allowing for the greatest flexibility in responding to children’s growing needs.

Give back while you shop!

  • Give back while you shop Amazon. Go to, choose BackPack Beginnings from the charity list and shop as you normally would on Amazon. Each time you shop from this site, 0.5% of your purchase price will be donated to us.


Please contact Parker White at if you are interested in any of our above needs.
