The Great Big Backpack Build

BUILD DATES: Summer 2020
at A Gift For Teaching

More than 70% of public schools in Orange and Osceola Counties are in high-need. Each school year, an alarmingly growing number of local students are unable to afford lunch, let alone school supplies.

With your support, entire schools and our Free Teacher Supply Store can be outfitted with brand new backpacks filled with essential school supplies to help ensure these students arrive at school prepared and excited to learn!

The Great Big Backpack Build is the ultimate feel-good experience infused with corporate social responsibility; perfect for any company, local business, employee resource groups, and civic organizations looking to engage their team members to give back locally in an impactful way.

Imagine yourself walking into class on the first day of school without a backpack…and finding one at your desk just for you! Together, we can make this joyous moment of relief happen for thousands of Central Florida students in need.

Your team will help build crucial backpacks with essential supplies to enrich our community’s classrooms with smiles and success!

Register an impact team of 5 participants for $1,000 with coworkers, friends or family members to be a part of this give back project!
