      Yes and Yes! Please bring supplies and join in filling the backpacks. I guarantee that you will enjoy yourself and meet some other incredible people just like yourself! This is always a full-filling event!

    Hi I am moving apartments on this date so I really doubt I will be able to attend. I still want to help though. My plan is to purchase two backpacks and put everything in it myself then give it to a member so they can take it on the 10th. I want to make sure I get the same supplies (backpack, etc.) What type of backpack should I get?

    • Debra O.

      Hi Scottie, Sent you an email yesterday with my info. Did not hear from you however due to some personal issues that have arisen, I will have to ask that you deliver the items yourself. Here is the number for Captain Hopes offices so that you can drop off with them at your convenience. Again, thanks so much for your donation. #[masked] or[masked]

    Is there a way to know who is bring what (and how many)? So there won't be like 200 rulers and a low number of something else.

    July 28, 2013

    • Debra O.

      Ideally we would like for everyone to be able to fill at least one backpack with all the supplies listed, however if that isn't possible then bring what you can. There are thousands of kids that need our help! Thanks.

    I may have to go out of town. If I'm here, I'll be there as extra.

  • Melinda

    Is it ok to bring my 12 year old to help?

    July 23, 2013

  • Dawn

    This is a fun event!! All the big box stores are starting their School Supply Sales - you can find fabulous deals on all kinds of school supplies at Walmart, Target, Office Depot, Staples, etc. Easy to stock up cheaply on a couple of the items on this list!

  • Eryn

    I am very interested in helping to fill a couple back packs for these kids. Just would like to clarify. Do I buy everything listed above to fill one back pack? and do i just drop the supplies off at the location that morning?

    July 12, 2013

    • Debra O.

      Hi Eryn, It would be great if you could fill a complete backpack with the whole list of supplies, but not an absolute. Also if you find a great deal and want to buy a surplus of any of the items individually that too would be awesome. To answer your second question, yes you may drop off the supplies at Captain Hopes. I would encourage you to stay and help fill backpacks when you come. It's fun and fulfilling!

    will drop off supplies that morning.
