Become a Sponsor. Prepare our City's Youth for a Successful School Year. 

Sponsors, volunteers, and community partners make it possible for us to help more than 3,000 Boston-area students start the school year off right. Thanks to their support, The Salvation Army Massachusetts Division has continued to distribute backpacks full of much-needed school supplies and hygiene products for ten years, including during the pandemic, through our Annual Back-to-School Celebration with Garden Neighborhood Charities, the philanthropic arm of the TD Garden, and The City of Boston.

Studies have shown that children who do not have new school supplies at the beginning of the academic year often skip the first several important weeks of class becausethey are embarrassed and believe that they don't fit in with their peers. This event provides a positive experience while playing a crucial role in the academic and personal lives of these children.
