Backpack & School Supply Drive

Help our kids succeed!  In partnership with Starbucks, the Town of Colma, the Daly City Partnership, Community Centers, and our Police and Fire Departments, we are collecting school supplies and backpacks for our school-age children.

Backpacks and school supplies can be donated and dropped off at any Daly City or Colma fire station, police and fire headquarters, community centers or Starbucks. Monetary donations are also accepted online at or by making a check donation payable to Daly City Partnership.

If you know of a child that may need assistance with school supplies, families may enroll at the Daly City Community Service Center located at 350 90th Street, Daly City. Enrollment guidelines are proof of income and residency (some South San Francisco and Brisbane families may apply if their children are enrolled in a Daly City school). Enrollment runs from July 1 through August 15.

Questions about the program may be made directly to Pat Bohm, Executive Director of Daly City Partnership, at or by calling the Community Service Center at (650) 991-8007.
