for your group to be successful in community outreach. Our "Hassle-Free" backpack program is designed to free up your time to minister to families in need. We will do the leg work of collecting the backpacks. You simply order the amount and size you need and get them into the kids' hands.
We are able to buy in bulk and pass that saving on to you. Each backpack retails for over $30, so our partners are getting a great deal! Please review the order form. Backpacks can be purchased with or without supplies.
Please note that this program is designed to help ministries, churches, caring companies, and civic organizations to better serve the kids within their reach. A minimum order of 10 backpacks is required.

Backpacks are not just for back-to-school events!
Here is a testimonial from Barbara Neu of Treasured Pearls, a ministry that reaches out to at-risk women
:...I met one of our longtime dancer friends who struggled to get out a couple of years ago...she has 2 part time jobs, single mom raising high school and middle school boys, no supportive family, knows God loves her but feels somewhat abandoned.
As she hugged me after I gave her the backpacks she broke down and thanked me for giving her one more reason to hope and trust in God.
I told her they were donated by people she may never meet to show her the love of Jesus...my last look of her as I drove away was her hugging the backpacks.
Thank you is never enough. But thank you.
Important Information About Shipping:
Orders placed by organizations that are 60 miles or more from Clearwater, FL, will have the option to add shipping. Pick-up is required for orders placed within the 60-mile radius Due to the rise of shipping costs, any order that is not picked up at SCTB warehouse will have to incur the cost of shipping. Costs are based on quantity. If you are purchasing backpacks with supplies, please note that you will be billed separately for the shipping cost of the supplies at the time of shipment. We will call you at time of shipping to provide the cost and remit payment.

Many of our events and special programs are operated by our staff and volunteers. These volunteers help Somebody Cares Tampa Bay reach further and do more than it could on its own. Be a part of a caring community in Tampa Bay!
Somebody Cares Tampa Bay only exists as an effective organization because of its volunteer base. People filled with Christ's love are God's and our biggest assets. Together, we are accomplishing God-sized goals; we are able to do something bigger than ourselves.
