Backpack Tips:

  • We are especially in need of new larger-sized backpacks for our middle and high school-aged students. As you are shopping, please consider donating these more generous sizes.
  • Gender-neutral colors are preferable for all grade levels.
  • Elementary and kindergarten backpacks should be large enough to accommodate pocket folders, notebooks, and pencil boxes (as adorable as they are, please, no mini backpacks).
  • As a reminder, schools in our service area do not allow students to use wheeled backpacks.

Don’t have time to order supplies? Please consider donating before August 13, 2021. Your donation will have the biggest impact. Thanks to special wholesale pricing, NVFS can stretch your dollars further.
