Announcing the Annapolis Backpack Collaborative (ABC)!
A community-wide effort to provide crucial school resources to middle and high school students
Collaborative (ABC). ABC is a group of local non-profits and community organizations working to support middle school and high school students in the Annapolis cluster by providing backpacks, earbuds, and basic school supplies to approximately 2,500 students.
This year, Anne Arundel County is providing all elementary students with school supplies and backpacks, ensuring a more level playing field for our youngest students as they return to remote learning this fall. But no provisions have been made to provide the crucial resources to connect our Middle and High schoolers to virtual learning.
We need your help!
By buying in bulk, ABC will keep costs low, ensuring that as many students as possible will receive these valuable resources. Each $15 donation provides one student with a backpack full of school supplies (including earbuds)! You can sponsor as many backpacks as you like by selecting the quantity during checkout. Donations made using the yellow buttons on this page are tax-deductible and will be collected by the Annapolis Police Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3). All funds donated using the buttons on this page will be specifically reserved for the ABC effort.
How can you help? Donate using the buttons on this page and share this initiative on your social media feeds.
Supplies will be distributed in the month of September at Annapolis Middle School, Annapolis High School, Bates Middle School, Phoenix Academy, and Mary Moss Academy. Follow our progress on Facebook!
ABC would like to extend its thanks to the following organizations for their support and partnership.
In response to these unprecedented times, the Annapolis Police Foundation is excited to be partnering with the Annapolis Backpack
