Donate to Build-A-Better Backpack

Donate to Build-A-Better Backpack with HELP USA so our 800 school-aged children living in HELP USA homeless shelters and supportive housing can head back to the classroom with confidence in September.

How it Works:

Step 1

You select a stuffed backpack from this site.

Step 2

Our partner Sydney Paige delivers them to us in NYC.

Step 3

HELP USA's staff puts them in the hands of our students.

These families have a lot to worry about but with your help, backpacks and school supplies won’t be a problem! Thank you for being a part of our community so we can help people build better lives. Contact HELP USA if you have questions or need more information.
