School Supply drives are growing more and more popular each year, they are such an incredible way to support kids who would otherwise start their school year off without the supplies they need to succeed. However, while most school supply drives are well-intentioned, they often have shortcomings – leaving it up to the donor to go out and purchase random items, which often results in oversupply of some things while failing to provide other critical items.

This year, Pledge 1% member Yoobi wants to eliminate the challenge of putting on a backpack drive with our a turn-key program that not only makes it simple to donate, but ensures all kids get the supplies they need.

INTRODUCING THE ALL NEW YOOBI BACKPACK DRIVE BUNDLE

With the purchase of this essential bundle, you can now easily donate all the supplies kids need for school. The best part is, through Yoobi’s One for You. One for Me. program, Yoobi will donate an additional school supply item for every item purchased, effectively DOUBLING THE IMPACT of any school supply drive. Pretty cool, huh?

WHAT GOES INSIDE?

Yoobi has built out this incredible backpack bundle with awesome essentials that will help kids start their year out right! Each backpack bundle contains the following items:

HANDS ON APPROACH: 

One of the best parts of Yoobi’s Backpack Program, is that your employees can be involved. For example, they’ll ship all the supplies to your office, and your employees can work together to stuff each of the backpacks with the school supplies. Once you’re done with the packing party, have your employees join when you go to a school or organization to make the actual donation.  There’s nothing like being hands-on when it comes to giving experiences. For some ideas, watch how we give here!
