Back to School Giveback

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we did not host our traditional Back to School Giveback, but with the help of 50+ volunteers and LifeTimeĀ® we were able to deliver backpacks filled with school supplies to 420 Columbus City School students! Find a way to make a difference.

2020 Backpack Giveback

The Driven Foundation and Life TimeĀ® provided 420 elementary school students with backpacks filled with supplies. The 4th Annual Backpack Giveback was held at Moler Elementary School on the Southside of Columbus, Ohio. 50+ volunteers from all around Ohio came out to make a difference. “What’s in my backpack?” Notebooks, pencils, erasers, composition notebooks, masks, crayons, custom luggage tags, and more… After the backpacks were filled, volunteers were divided into small groups to hand deliver the backpacks to area students at their homes.

Free School Supplies For 500 Students

Each year at the beginning of August the stress levels of many Central Ohio parents begin to rise because of the heavy burden of purchasing school supplies for multiple children. Our Back to School Event was designed to help eliminate that burden by offering 500 free backpacks and more than 5,000 school supplies to students in attendance. The Back to School Event is a first come, first served event.

Academics Start with Wellness

Before kids can even begin to focus on academic and personal growth, they need access to basic hygiene resources. We help families prepare for the academic year by providing deodorant, body wash, bar soap, hand soap, hand sanitizer, toothbrushes & toothpaste, memory foam pillows, wash cloths, bottled water, and more.
