NHWBA is Collecting Backpacks for the NH Department of Education's Annual Backpack Drive Now through August 12!

The New Hampshire Department of Education will be hosting its annual backpack drive! The drive will run through Aug. 12. This is the seventh year that NHED has been collecting new backpacks for children in need throughout the state. 

Diana Fenton, an attorney at NHED, created the annual backpack drive as a way to give back to those less fortunate. 

“There are many families throughout the state that simply cannot afford to purchase a backpack for their child. We want to make sure that every child can start the new school year with a fresh start and a new backpack,” said Fenton.

Backpacks are provided to school nurses for distribution across the state to students who need one. 

The NHWBA is collecting backpacks for the NHED's drive. There are multiple ways to participate! 

Drop your backpacks off at Pastori Krans in Concord during normal business hours located at 82 North Main Street, Suite B, Concord, NH 03301.

Pastori Krans will also be accepting backpacks by mail at the same address should anyone wish to ship a backpack!

Schedule an appointment with Kat Hedges, keh@rathlaw.com to drop backpacks off at Rath Young and Pignatelli's Manchester office located at 1855 Elm Street, Manchester, NH 03104

Backpacks may also be dropped off from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays directly at the NHED's office, 25 Hall St. in Concord. At the front entrance, please call Natasha Lupiani at 603-271-3196 for assistance.
