Adopt a Backpack

Purchase and Pack a backpack with school supply items for a student in Centennial District ISD12

This program is made possible through adopters -- like you!

We need you and others to adopt backpacks and fill them with their school supplies from their class list. 

This is a great program for individuals, families, groups (book clubs, parent groups, scout groups) and businesses to support. 

Just decide how many packs to adopt, buy the supplies and have a mini packing party. 

The typical backpack and supplies will cost roughly $50-$60 to purchase and pack.

In the past, this program and its team of volunteers have stored and purchased additional supplies to serve all students in need in the entire district who signed up.  Our team is unable to store and manage the extra supplies anymore, so we have made some modifications to the traditional program. 

For the upcoming school year backpacks will be provided through adopters only. 

So, the more adopters that sign up, the more students in need we are able to help. 

Initially we will adopt backpacks for students in Centennial Elementary

and Golden Lake Elementary and siblings of those sign ups in Centennial ISD12.

These are the schools with the greatest need. 

If we have an abundance of adopters we will include an additional elementary,

that decision will be made in early spring before school sign ups.

Adopters are accepted all year long, however it is important to fill out this form before the end of February

to be guaranteed a student for the upcoming school year

This allows us to calculate how many students we will be able to help. 

Sign ups after February may still be assigned a student for the upcoming school year, as supply of students allow.

Adopters will be sent their school supply lists using "snail mail" in mid July and

backpacks are due back to Our Savior's Lutheran Church in early August.  Specific dates will be emailed to adopters.

If you wish to make a financial contribution instead of purchasing a backpack and supplies, we will gladly accept it! 

100% of monetary donations go toward purchasing needed classroom school supplies requested by ALL Centennial District ISD12 schools and filling any unadopted backpacks from the schools above. 

The form below is for ADOPTERS only.  If you are looking to sign your child up to RECEIVE a backpack, please speak with your school (counselor or secretary).  They are aware of this program and will help you get connected with how to sign up. 

Sign ups for those needing supplies occur only in the spring, and this year only in Centennial Elementary and Golden Lake Elementary.

This is a community program headquartered at Our Savior's Lutheran Church.  It is made possible through a small team of dedicated volunteers and support from St. Mark's Church, Centennial Community Ed, grants from Centennial Area Education Foundation and Our Savior's Lutheran Church, financial donations and adopters from the community.  Thank you!  This program is appreciated by the recipients. 

Thanks for submitting! School Supply lists will be mailed out mid July. Packs are due in August.
