Back-to-School Backpack Drive 2024

Auction Frogs is teaming up with Kendall Auto Group to help kids in our community get back to school right by hosting a back-to-school backpack drive!

Many students in our community are living in poverty and dealing with homelessness. In the Nampa School District alone, the statistics are astounding:

  • 50% of the student population is living under the poverty level
  • 3,000 students need help with school supplies each year
  • 1,100 students are experiencing homelessness

The Vallivue and West Ada school districts all face similar problems. To help make a difference for our schools and their students, Auction Frogs and Kendall Auto Group are jumping in to get the supplies they need. And we need your help, too!

About the Back-to-School Backpack Drive

Auction Frogs and Kendall Auto Group will be collecting backpacks full of school supplies during the month of July to help students facing homelessness and poverty. The backpacks and supplies we collect will be distributed to the Nampa, Valliview, and West Ada school districts. The districts will gift backpacks and supplies to students in need as the upcoming school year starts.

But, we can’t do it alone. Get involved today by donating a new backpack filled with school supplies for a student in need!
