Bonnie and her granddaughter Zoey donate backpacks
JFS SV's 2017 Back-to-School Backpack Drive
June 21st thru July 26th
Please join us by supporting Equipped To Learn – the JFS SV Back-to-School Backpack Drive. Your generosity will help ensure that students regardless of circumstances, can start school with a well-packed, brand-new, fully-equipped backpack.
Is there a stronger memory than that first day of school feeling, with
fresh notebooks, sharpened pencils, and good solid erasers?
With your help, our children and youth will be off a great start to
a successful 2017 school year!
You can help JFS SV clients, ranging in ages from pre-schoolers
through young adult learners, be better prepared for back-to-school
and ready to learn.
In this third year effort, our aim is to help even more children and
families than before. Our goal this year is to deliver full backpacks
for as many as 250 students. The backpacks will go to students of all
ages from families that are economically struggling, allowing those families
reduce this burden from their limited resources.
There are multiple ways in which you can get involved this year:
1) Click on any or all of the suggested supplies lists below for each age group. Just print out one or more of the wish list tags and go out shopping! Remember, we need backpacks for all age groups. Deliver your purchases to JFS offices at the Levy Family Campus in Los Gatos.
High School & Adult Learners
2) Pick up a gift idea tag at various stations throughout the
Levy Family Campus (thanks to our APJCC friends), or at one of
our community partner locations:
Congregation Beth David
Congregation Beth Am
Temple Beth Torah
3) You can purchase school supplies and/or gift cards online via Target.com and have them sent directly to JFS. Just click on Target Online for JFS SV Backpacks
If you purchase a Target Gift Card and wish to email it to JFS, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
