Will you donate the supplies local children need to succeed? Pack a backpack with school supplies to support families in Maryland! Building Families for Children will distribute your donation to make sure students return to school this fall feeling confident and prepared!


Supplies: Please consider leading a school supply drive at your church or in your community to support local kids and families! If you would like us to include the end date of your collection on the materials, or if you would like us to send you hard copies, please email

Funds: Every dollar we raise provides direct support to children and families in need. Our hope is to help children as they return to school, AND to help families as they work to secure housing, find employment, or deal with other crisis situations that can disrupt a child’s school year and make it hard for them to succeed. Please make checks payable to Building Families for Children. Thank you!

Time: Help us get school supply donations ready for delivery at our annual Backpack Packing Party on August 20 from 4-7PM! We’ll fill backpacks with supplies, make encouraging bookmarks for the kiddos, and eat pizza! To RSVP, call 410-872-1050 extension 1600 or email
