The Backpack Project


The Patchwork Foundation will host the 9th Backpack Giveaway on Thursday, August 15th, 2022 at the Kinsman United Methodist Church. With your generous support, we plan on continuing this giveaway each August!

Recognizing a need to support the local students and families, The Patchwork Foundation began the Back to School Backpack Giveaway in August 2014.  Along with the support of local businesses such as Staples, Hair by Julia, Great Clips, Dr. John Rohrabaugh, DDS and the congregations of the Kinsman United Methodist Church and the Gustavus Federated Church, over 1100 filled backpacks, haircuts, and meals have been given away.
