Alameda Health System’s (AHS) Backpack and School Supply Drives are underway so let’s do what we can to help our neighborhood children succeed!

The cost of school supplies can be a significant hurdle for many families, especially this year with prices soaring at all-time highs. Families are struggling to keep food on the table and gas in the tank and  back-to-school supplies may take a back seat.

In 2019 AHS held a successful backpack and school supply drive for a neighborhood school just blocks from Highland Hospital and last year, we expanded our efforts throughout the system.  In partnership with local school districts we supported seven schools, one near each of our facilities, and we’re doing it again this year!

Your generosity will help a generation of students walk through school doors this year ready and able to learn. That support has never been more important. A backpack full of supplies like, paper, pens, folders and colored pencils, can go a long way in supporting our youth!

Each neighborhood school has slightly different need so please see flyers below for additional details. All supply drives run through July 29 so get your donations in today.
