It's once again time for the KOG Backpack Challenge! Our goal is to provide backpacks and supplies for all 450 children who attend Dobie Pre-Kindergarten. You can help by making a monetary donation, purchasing backpacks and supplies, and/or volunteering with stuffing and delivery.
UPDATE: We are getting close to the goal! binders, watercolors, crayons and gluesticks have been fulfilled and we only need 16 more backpacks! Check out the updated wish lists and printable supply list for details on what is still needed.
Dobie Pre-Kindergarten, located in the Richardson School District, serves preschoolers with financial challenges and/or developmental disabilities. Dobie has little parent involvement and teachers often provide important school supplies from their own salaries. The Backpack Challenge is just one of the many ways King of Glory supports Dobie's teachers, students, and families.
Make a Monetary Donation
King of Glory is collecting monetary donations to purchase all needed school supplies. We are able to purchase the requested supplies in bulk for a lot less than can be found in the store. To purchase the supplies and backpacks, we need approximately $12,000. Donations are collected in the offering plate on Sundays, through KOGgives, and on the Venmo app @kingofglory.
Donate a Backpack and Supplies
We are accepting donations of 15"-18" new backpacks that will hold a standard size folder. We also need a set of requested supplies for each backpack.
You can DROP OFF backpacks AT KOG or
you can ORDER ONLINE and have them DELIVERED.
