Summer 2021 backpack distribution

As you may know, last year we made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person event to ensure public safety amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. Instead, we chose a different approach to the Back to School effort–one that is community organization-focused and wide-reaching. In this model, organizations have an integral role in signing up and distributing backpacks to their assigned families as we remain committed to providing book bags filled with school supplies to K-12th grade students living in the greater Coatesville community.

This year, we have chosen to continue with this approach, with everyone’s safety and well-being in mind.

There are 2 options to sign up to receive a backpack from the Coatesville Back to School effort this year:

  1. We have chosen the following community-serving organizations to register persons for their own distribution this summer. Families can contact these organizations to secure a backpack for their students:

    Bridge Academy and Community Center
    Coatesville Youth Initiative
    Coatesville Center for Community Health
    Chester County Women’s Services
    Chester County Futures
    Coatesville Area School District
    Coatesville Kids to College
    Regency Park Apartments
    Hutchinson Memorial UAME Church
    Coatesville Coalition Event

  2. Starting July 19th, you can register your family WITHOUT signing up with a partner organization. Visit https://forms.gle/VckaVXmiTgwxRvZv9 to register by August 2nd.
