Backpack Giveback

2022 Backpack Giveback

The Driven Foundation and Life Time® will provide 400 elementary school students with backpacks filled with supplies, wellness items, and a BBQ meal. The 6th Annual Backpack Giveback will be held at Moler Elementary School on the Southside of Columbus, Ohio. 50+ volunteers from all around Ohio will join us in making a difference. “What’s in the backpack?” Notebooks, pencils, erasers, composition notebooks, masks, crayons, custom luggage tags, and more. 😊

Free School Supplies For 400 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 Backpack Giveback was designed to help eliminate that burden by offering 400 free backpacks and more than 5,000 school supplies to students.

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.
