For 18 years, the Backpacks for Kids program has supported Northshore families by providing a backpack filled with school supplies for every student needing one.

This year, when education moved from the classroom to the cloud, many families who rely on supplies provided at school found themselves struggling.

Now, the Backpacks program is pivoting to meet the needs of the times. 

Starting this fall, we will make supply packs available to families throughout the school year.  These kits will be made for at-home use to supplement the supplies the district traditionally provides.  Families may request packs directly from the Foundation and arrangements will be made to deliver them to families. 

  • If you would like to request a supply pack  for your student(s) for the fall, please complete this form
  • If you know of a family in need who may not see this email, please pass this on to them or call the Kokanee office at 425-408-4900 to contact the family directly.

If you are able to contribute to support this program, please donateA $50 contribution covers costs for three student supply kits.

We will post an update about the program by July 15, 2020, when more details have been worked out in partnership with our district. For more information, visit
