Join Yale’s affinity groups to support the Boys & Girls Club of New Haven Backpack & School Supply Drive that will take place through Sunday, August 15th.

The Boys & Girls Club of New Haven youth are getting back to in-person learning this September and need school supplies! Many of the families struggle financially to meet basic necessities, so we are seeking school supply donations to reduce that burden. You can purchase new backpacks, school supplies, or one or the other, and the Boys & Girls Club of New Haven will take care of the distribution. You also can ship supplies directly from retailers to: 253 Columbus Avenue, New Haven, CT 06519, or drop them off Monday – Friday, 9 am – 5 pm.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Ann McCarthy at:

Thank you for helping us get our community youth back to learning with the tools they need to be prepared for the classroom!
