Backpack Coalition will be distributing more than 1,700 backpacks on August 23. Letters are being mailed no later than August 18 to those who pre-registered.  The letters will provide times and locations for obtaining the backpacks.  If you have not received your letter by Thursday, August 21, or you cannot attend the Saturday distribution event, contact the Backpack Coalition at (262) 226-7420. 

Those who did not pre-register, may still be able to get backpacks on August 23, between 11:30 and 12:30. There is no guaranty that we will have extra backpacks, and if we do, they are available on a first-come first-serve basis.  To be eligible you must fill out the application and have photo ID, proof of address, and ID for each child (i.e. MA card, Social Security card, or birth certificate).  The location for late registration/pick-up is at the Waukesha County Health and Human Services Building, 514 Riverview Ave, Waukesha.

We will do our best to give your child some school supplies. 

Backpack Coalition, Inc. helps children participate and succeed in school by providing school backpacks and supplies. We serve low-income families in Waukesha County, Wisconsin.
