We're collecting backpacks and donations for the 2019-2020 School Year!

Every year we ensure our community’s children are ready to start school with confidence and pride through our Back to School Program. We provide a new backpack filled with essential (and new) school supplies. Last year we served more than 1,600 children across San Mateo County and this year we anticipate serving 2,000. Please consider donating a gift that covers the price of a backpack (or two!) filled with the necessary supplies to help children excel!

Thanks to a few generous donors, your donation will be matched one-to-one up to $10,000!

Organizer's note: We are grateful to each of the community, religious, corporate, and student groups who organize backpack drives on behalf of Samaritan House. If you or someone you know is excited about organizing or getting involved with a local Backpack Drive, we are happy to assist! Please contact Ricky Davis, Volunteer Coordinator, with questions and/or details of your drive. Thank you!!
