The North Coast Church annual Backpack Drive exists to help support local children without access to necessary school supplies by providing NEW back-to-school items for the upcoming school year.

The goal of this drive is to set these children and youth up for success! As simple as it seems, a new backpack can have a profound effect on the life of a student and their family. This event takes place at all North Coast Campuses. Simply drop off your filled backpack at your campus during service times.

No, thank you!  We would like to make sure these kids receive a really nice gift.

While historically we have only collected for the elementary school,  Middle school/high school are the most overlooked age group.  If possible, choose a solid or gender neutral colored backpack for a teenager.

Yes!  Please mark the pack with “male or female” and the age or grade of the child in mind.  Take a piece of paper or tape, and adhere it to the backpack with the information.

Each campus sponsors specific community partners, but if individual North Coast members are in need, contact Pastor Robby to get on the list.
