90%
9 days left

Giving education-related gifts during the holidays is a powerful way to invest in a child's future and foster a lifelong love for learning.

Education is the key to empowering individuals and communities. By providing educational gifts, you're investing in a child's knowledge skills, and abilities, enabling them to make a positive impact on society in the future by:

  • BOOSTING SELF-CONFIDENCE
  • ENCOURAGING CURIOSITY
  • CLOSING THE OPPORTUNITY GAP
  • PROMOTING LIFELONG LEARNING
  • SUPPORTING PERSONAL GROWTH
  • BUILDING STRONGER COMMUNITIES

Education-related gifts nurture a generation of informed, curious, and empowered individuals who can shape a better world for us all.

A little goes a LONG way! Help by engaging friends, family, and coworkers to make smaller donations that up to a significant impact. Thank you for participating to help students' minds flourish and become the leaders and change makers they were meant to be!

This year, we are excited to benefit kids from the following three NY organizations:

  • Iris House
  • The Child Center of New York
  • Partnership with Children
Backpacks & School Supplies Drive - Invest in the Future

One of the top reasons students drop out of school is lack of tools to do their work. Every child should have access to the tools and confidence needed to learn and thrive in school regardless of their zip code. 


Hidden Valley Elementary School in Martinez, is one of 29 elementary schools in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District that needs our help. 


Please consider donating a high quality backpack filled with school supplies. You'll be making an investment in the future of these children, breaking down barriers to educational success!

Help us provide much needed backpacks and school supplies to MDUSD youth who can't otherwise afford these items. At a collective cost of over $100, buying these supplies is just not an option for families who are struggling to put food on the table.

We know that education is the #1 path out of poverty and with a combined effort to help students in need, we can help put them on a path to success! With a core focus on quality to boost self-worth, we thank you for partnering with us to provide the tools and confidence needed for these kids to thrive!

Help our Peres K-8 Scholars Get Ready to Learn this New School Year!

This fall Peres K-8 School will welcome 570 scholars on campus. Every year, our students come through our gates ready and excited to learn new things. Every year we try to help our students overcome challenges in their day-to-day life. We provide opportunities for our students to be academically ready and emotionally sound to grow into their fullest potential. With this promise comes the great challenge of supporting our school families.  As a Title 1  school, 100% of our students get free and reduced lunch daily. Most of our families live in an economically challenging situation. 

Our vision would not materialize without community support. Our annual partnership with the Sydney Paige Foundation has allowed us to provide all our kids with backpacks filled with school supplies. Providing these very basic materials goes beyond the hopeful smiles of our students.  It signifies a great start to the school year with students prepared to learn. IT also signifies our families' sense of security that they do not have to choose between a meal or buying school supplies for their children to get them ready for the school year.

Each backpack is that is donated sets our students up to be successful everyday. We appreciate all your support in making our dream a reality. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Ukraine Backpack & School Supply Drive

HELP US HELP UKRAINIAN KIDS IN NEED

As Ukrainians enter into the second year of this senseless war, we are both heartbroken for its terrible civilian impact and driven to action to help where we can.

We have a strong connection to humanitarian efforts in this region. Our Director of Development, Sharon Girdlestone, and two of our Board members, Tim Cronin and Noah Sims, have all been to Ukraine and Poland to help feed, clothe and procure essential items to those who have been injured and displaced due to the atrocious attacks on the country. Noah is there now, working with World Central Kitchen, and has been for the best part of a year.

When the the war began, over 105,000 children were already living across more than 700 orphanages, boarding schools and other establishments. Now entering year two of the war, the number of orphans is estimated to have grown to over 150,000 and the displacement of these children has been horrific to say the least.

While thousands of orphans were sent back to the homes that originally could not care for them, tens of thousands more have been displaced across Ukraine with no place to call home. Even worse, according to a report by the Conflict Observatory (an organization supported by the US State Department), more than 6,000 Ukrainian children have been kidnapped and put in Russian camps and over 14,000 more have been forced into Russian adoption.

While we do not know the exact number of orphaned children at this point, we do know that the need is NOW.  In collaboration with local non-profits, Boca Helps Ukraine and NovaUkraine, we are launching this online drive and could use your support immediately. 

Our goal is to provide 2,000 backpacks filled with highly requested school supplies and other essential items (coats, washcloths, toothbrushes, etc) to orphans in Eastern and Southeastern Ukraine. With your help, we can make a difference.

Please join us in our mission to help these children by making a donation today and spreading awareness about these needs.

With love and gratitude, The Sydney Paige Team

Winter Coat Donation Drive

Help us keep kids warm this winter and performing at their best with awesome coats that last and are stylish to help boost their self-confidence!

At Sydney Paige, we have been flooded with requests from educators and non-profit partners for winter coats that are high-quality and water resistant. With self-worth and pure love as our driving factors, we went on a journey to find a solution. We are so excited that we have found a supplier of amazing jackets equally excited about giving back that both the littles and the teens will love - for just $25-$28! Whhaaattt!?!?

Our coats have a detachable hood and are fleece-lined (cozy!), machine washable and water-repellent - which means when it rains or snows, beads of waters will form and fall right off of the jacket! We would all buy these for our kids with a $75-$100+ price tag!

  • Youth coats come in sizes 2T, 3T, 4, 5/6, 7/8, 10/12, 14/16 or 18
  • Teen/Young Adult coats are available in S, M, L or XL

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,

The Sydney Paige Team ~ Courtney, Tenaya, Sharon, Chimene, Joanne, Natalie and Krista

Crayola Crayon Collection
94%
0 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!

Sydney Paige 2022 Backpack & School Supply Drive

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 info@sydneypaige.org 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!
