We have backpacks and need your help filling them.

Thanks to a donation from CentiMark Corporation, we will distribute more than 1,000 new backpacks to local students. We need your help to load them up with back-to-school necessities. Can you host a drive, take up a collection or make a donation?

Plan your back-to-school supply drive.


1. Register your back-to-school drive at here. Contact Seth Dubin at (412) 854-9120 ext 109 or sdubin@shimcares.org with questions.


2. Spread the word! Download our customizable poster and most-needed items list to help market your drive.


3. Collect NEW school supplies before August 2, 2019.


4. Deliver your collection to SHIM’s Bethel Park office before August 2 during our regular donation hours,
Monday through Wednesday 9am-4:30pm or Thursday and Friday by appointment.
