Back-to-School Drive – San Francisco
Providing for the Education of Deserving Children in Our Community
The Nandalala Mission Back-to-School Drive is the only annual fundraiser event of Nandalala Mission. Every year, volunteers drive the effort to contact underfunded schools and work directly with school administration teams to gather a list of items most in need for the upcoming academic year. Volunteers then buy them in the wholesale market and organize a free and fun event for children to pack the items to be donated. Children and parents participate with high enthusiasm.
Our mission is geared towards holistic development of children, and this annual event has a big impact on participating children. They realize the value of education when they see that these backpacks and other donation items go to underprivileged children, and it inculcates the genuine thought of sharing and giving back to the community in which the children live.
