Backpack and School Supply Drive

for Sequoia High School






















For most of our students and families, the expense of school supplies and a backpack is doable. But for some Sequoia students-- especially those who are unhoused or new arrivals to the US with refugee/asylum status-- the cost is prohibitive.

Two ways to help: 1) purchase backpack and supplies, or 2) donate money. 

New backpacks need to be:

  • Gray, beige/brown or black.

  • preferably no design or minimal/subtle design

  • have a cushiony inside pocket (14" x 10") to accomodate a chromebook and other supplies.

  • large enough to fit the typical teenage contents: a binder or two, notebooks, books and lunch with zippers/closures work reliably.

School Supplies needed are:

  • Pens

  • Erasers

  • Notebooks

  • Folders

  • Binders

  • Highlighters

  • Pencils


To donate school supplies or backpacks, please email


To donate money, go to

and click “Give to Sequoia HS Back to School Donation” in the drop down menu and add St.Peter’s to the comment field to donate money.


All donations need to be in by 7/31.

Your donation will ensure that every Sequoia student has the opportunity to reach his or her highest potential. Thank you for your support!
