Education can help children overcome poverty but what if you don’t have the basic tools necessary to succeed in school? What if your family cannot afford basics like pencils, rulers and notebooks how can you be expected to learn? This is why Denver7 Pack A Backpack was created, to alleviate this burden for many.


In its 3rd year, the initiative has seen tremendous growth and that is thanks to our giving community! For the second year in a row we are joining forces with Salvation Army and Les Schwab Tires Center and asking you to help children show up for school ready to learn!  The initiative will run from July 2nd through July 29th and you can donate supplies at any of the nineteen Les Schwab Tires Center locations here or with just a click at


We kindly ask that you donate items from the list below. Your contribution of just fifteen dollars can provide one fully ready backpack for a child in need.
