Tahoe Truckee Unified School District - Backpack Giveback - Purchase backpacks and back-to-school supplies (spiral notebooks, pens, pencils, colored pencils, markers) prior to Sept. 12.

Drop off your donations at church on Sunday Sept. 5 or Sept. 12 anytime between 9:30 am - 11:00 am. On Sunday, Sept. 12, volunteers will assemble the backpacks.

Work will be done outside, or in case of smoke or inclement weather, inside with face coverings. Time commitment: 1 hr. to assemble backpacks plus time spent shopping for school supplies.
Days for Girls - Days for Girls is an international organization that provides health information and lasting access to feminine hygiene solutions to young women across the globe.

Work will be done in the comfort of your own home at your leisure with detailed instructions and access to Team Leaders to answer any questions. Time commitment: 2 hrs.
