We are so grateful for the power of community and can't thank you enough for your help to make this possible!!

Harbor House's mission is to create and deliver integrated solutions to profound social problems. Since 1991, The Salvation Army Harbor House has developed and operated housing and provided chemical dependency treatment, workforce solutions, and other supportive services to single-parent families who are homeless.

Sydney Paige mobilizes the power of the community to provide low-income youth with quality backpacks and school supplies to help them learn & thrive in school.

While TSE has fundraised in the past to receive donated materials, the need from TSE participants outstrips available resources. The impact on students' learning experience when they are equipped with the necessary resources to succeed in school cannot be overstated.

In order to ensure students are equipped with school essentials, TSE is seeking in-kind donations of backpacks and school supplies in partnership with the Sydney Paige Foundation. When TSE participants have the classroom tools they need, they can more easily turn their focus to learning. We ask that you help us help the parents we support hit the easy button and check these important items off their list for the 2022-2023 school year.

Thank you so much for your support. The kids are going to be so excited!

Sydney Paige 2022 Backpack & School Supply Drive
27 days left

During these difficult times of rising costs, we are reaching out earlier than ever to ask for your help. Last year, we were able to distribute 19,731 high-quality, performance-enhancing, change-agent backpacks (amazing!) and have a goal to give at least 25,000 to kids in need this year. We will fill them all with full sets of age-appropriate school supplies and at least 1 book. We can't wait to experience the pure joy of students 'shopping' for their very own school bag and supplies, but we greatly need your help to make this happen.

Price increases continue to take place, but if we can raise enough funds early on, we can avoid them for the summer months when out-of-stocks related to back-to-school are an issue and prices shoot up even more. Please help us buy early so that we can help as many kids as possible by providing them with the tools and confidence needed to learn & thrive in school, right here in our own communities. 

Simply add items to your cart below to give and please share with friends, families, corporate sponsors, community organizations, etc. etc. Contact us at to set up your own drive to help us reach our overall goal as well (a great way for teens to earn service hours!) - Thank you for your incredible support!

Alone, we can only do so much. Together, the opportunities are endless!

Crayola Crayon Collection
27 days left

Can you imagine Elementary School students not having crayons? If you're like us, you have crayons in multiple drawers and cubbies throughout your home as well as in your kids' backpacks. Unfortunately, for low-income students, this is not the case. They are unable to do coloring assignments given for homework and cannot create the masterpieces they should be able to in order to express their creativity and grow their confidence.

Please help us bring joy into kids' lives by providing students in need with the very best crayons out there - Crayola! Together, we can help thousands of kids for such little spend individually.

Why are we exclusively asking for 24 count Crayola crayons? It's simple -- because we always want to give the students we serve the very best and Crayola is it!

  1. Self-Worth: The branding itself ignites complete joy within children and says "I'm worth it" like no other crayon brand could.
  2. Quality: The magic of Crayola not only delivers its stellar performance of smooth, silky color with its crayons, but also has the strength others don't. And why is that? They wrap their crayons twice! -- A little trivia for your day. :)

If you are passionate about helping kids succeed in school and in life, please help provide Crayola crayons in our school supply kits by:

  1. donating to this drive
  2. holding a collection drive ~ you can collect in person or create your own online drive by selecting "Launch New Drive" to the right. If you're a student, we sign off on service hours if you hold a collection drive! :)
  3. making a purchase through our Amazon wish list

Thank you for your help to make the otherwise impossible POSSIBLE for the kids we are so fortunate to serve. We can't do it without you!

Giving Back Together,

Hygiene Kits for Homeless Students
0 days left

From Sharon McGinnis Girdlestone:

There are 650 homeless students in the Mount Diablo School District, just a few miles from us. I find this heart-wrenching and want to help. I am working with local non-profits, White Pony Express, All Good Livings, and the Sydney Paige Foundation, as well as the Mount Diablo School District, to ensure these kids get all of the hygiene items they need.

Many of us have put effort into helping and have donated items, including a parent who donated 1,500 body washes and lotions, THANK YOU! I’m now running this drive to fill in the rest of the items needed.

At a time & place TBD, we will also hold a ‘pack-out party’ to put all items into backpacks. Bring your kids to help assemble kits, create notes of encouragement, and have a blast giving back together as a community! Details to come.

Please sponsor as many items as you can so that we can not only provide full kits to all 650 homeless students, but also help them feel loved, cared for, and BELIEVED in! They are up against all odds right now. I hope you’ll join me in being a beacon of light in their lives.

Thank you so much for your support!

About Caleb & Calder Sloan's Awesome Foundation

On April 13, 2014, the parents of Calder Jacob Sloan kissed their son goodbye for the last time. Just a week after his 7th birthday, Calder was electrocuted and killed instantly in his backyard pool.

With an unfathomable amount of pain, the Sloans were surrounded by an immense amount of love and support from family, friends, coworkers, and even strangers. Instead of letting their son's death destroy them, they decided to dedicate themselves to carry on Calder's impact of helping others.

Calder's mantra was Adventure. Laughter. Kindness. He was so full of life and had so many incredible traits that he could only be summed up as AWESOME. With his nickname "Mr. Awesome", Calder sought out any opportunity to live life to the fullest and help others.

In both of their sons' names, the Sloans founded The Caleb and Calder Sloan's Awesome Foundation with a focus on helping disadvantaged children and empowering kids to pay it forward themselves. With their son's self-portrait drawing as their logo, they have inspired and built a community of kindness and giving back across the world.
