Pack a Backpack

Adopt a Backpack and Help a Student
March 28, 2022

2022 Community Backpack Program

The backpack program lives on!  Help Centennial students in need by filling a backpack with school supplies for a Centennial student in need.  We have modified this program to be an adoption only program and it will serve Centennial Elementary and Golden Lake Elementary students first, then their siblings at CMS and CHS. These are our schools with the most students in need. 

How can you help?  

Adopt a backpack (or several)!  Go to and fill out the form to adopt one or several backpacks. Please sign up now!  The number of adopters we have by spring will determine how many children we can sign up to receive backpacks. You will receive a school supply list in mid July and packed backpacks are due in August (date provided with list).  This is a great project for businesses or groups as well as individuals, looking to help in our community.

Donate money!  

All monetary donations will go directly to purchase needed/requested supplies for classrooms in any Centennial school.  Any amount appreciated!

Donate School Supplies.  

Although we will not be packing extra backpacks, any extra school supplies will be donated to Centennial schools. Go and scroll to the bottom to give online.

Share this information with friends and neighbors!  

This is a community program, headquartered out of Our Savior's Lutheran Church with generous support from other local churches, businesses, Night to Unite, foundations, etc. This program was scheduled to end this past year but was revived in this modified form because of the tremendous need in the community and the dedication of our team and adopters.
