North Fulton Community Charities is collecting new backpacks filled with school supplies for its annual Back-to-School program.

North Fulton Community Charities is asking community members to donate new backpacks filled with school supplies for elementary, middle and high school students. Donors can also choose to make a financial contribution to purchase backpacks.

“This year, after the disruption caused by COVID-19, there is a need to restore a sense of normalcy for children starting school,” NFCC Director of Development Sherri Morgan said. “A backpack does so much more than simply carry school supplies; it sends the message that students are important and so is their education.”

Backpacks and supplies will be distributed July 29 through August 1st to registered participants. Registration is required for qualified families residing in North Fulton. Registration instructions are posted online at

Donations can be dropped off at Elkins Pointe Middle School from: 

  • July 23 - 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
