It's once again time for the KOG Backpack Challenge. Our goal is to provide backpacks and supplies for all 500 kids that attend Dobie Pre Kindergarten. You can help by making a monetary donation, purchasing a backpack and/or volunteering with stuffing and delivery.
Dobie Pre Kindergarten, is located in the Richardson School District. It 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 school supplies. We are able to purchase the requested school supplies in bulk for a lot less than what you would find in the store. Every child will receive their entire supply list for around $20! To purchase the supplies for all 500 children of Dobie Pre Kindergarten, we need approximately $12,000.
Donate a Backpack
We are accepting for donations of 15"-18" new backpacks that will hold a standard size folder.
You can DROP OFF your donations AT KOG or you can ORDER ONLINE AND HAVE them DELIVERED.
Prefer to remain at home but would still like to participate? Order a backpack online and have it delivered! We have set up a KOG Backpack Challenge Wishlist on Amazon.com. It's Easy!
