Backpacks for KidS
Empowering Young Minds, One Backpack at a Time


Welcome to our Backpacks for Kids program! We are on a mission to empower underprivileged children and create a brighter future for our community. Through the generosity and support of individuals like you, we can provide essential backpacks filled with hope, opportunity, and the tools for success. As we embark on this journey, we want to remind you of our longstanding commitment to making a difference. For nearly a decade, we founded and led the Next Step Outback’s initiative in the Gulf Coast, impacting the lives of countless individuals. If you’d like to explore or reminisce about our previous efforts, feel free to visit Next Step Outback. 


Why Backpacks for Kids? 

Education is a powerful caatalyst for change, but unfortunately, many children face barriers that hinder their academic progress. Limited access to school supplies can undermine their potential and hold them back from reaching their goals. That’s where Backpacks for Kids steps in.

By providing backpacks filled with essential school supplies, we give children the resources they need to thrive. These backpacks become more than just bags; they become symbols of support, encouragement, and belief in their abilities. With each backpack, we are investing in a child’s education and empowering them to overcome challenges, break barriers, and dream big. 

How You Can Make a Difference

Your support is vital in making a meaningful impact in the lives of these children. Together, we can light up their faces with smiles and provide them with the tools they need to succeed.  The cost of one backpack and all the school supplies for one child is $100.00.*

Here’s how you can get involved: 


  1. Donate: Your generous contribution will go directly towards purchasing backpacks and filling them with essential school supplies. Every donation, no matter the size, makes a significant difference.
  2. Sponsorship: Showcase your business as a caring leader in our community by becoming a sponsor for Backpacks for Kids. Your brand will be prominently displayed as a champion for children’s education.

  4. Nominate a Child: Be the catalyst for change by nominating a child who is in need of help with school supplies and a backpack. Your firsthand knowledge of the community can make a direct impact on the lives of these children. By nominating a child, you give them the opportunity to receive the support they deserve. Help us identify those who would benefit the most from the Backpacks for Kids program. Together, we can ensure that no child is left behind in their educational journey. Nominate a child today and be the change they need to succeed.
