Backpack Giveback

2024 Backpack Giveback Is Almost HERE

The Driven Foundation and Life Time® will provide Central Ohio 400 elementary and middle school students with backpacks filled with supplies, wellness items, and also provide them with a  BBQ meal. The 8th Annual Backpack Giveback will host 50+ volunteers from all around Ohio who will join us in making a difference. “What’s in the backpack?” Notebooks, pencils, erasers, composition notebooks, 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.



2021 Backpack Giveback

The 5th Annual Driven Foundation Backpack Giveback was a tremendous success as we teamed up with over 100 dedicated volunteers to make a positive impact in the lives of Central Ohio students. This event aimed to provide essential resources for education by distributing backpacks filled with school supplies to more than 350 students in need. The generosity of our volunteers and the support from the community allowed us to equip these students with the tools they need to succeed academically.

2020 Backpack Giveback

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