Christmas Backpack Program - Covenant House Vancouver

Christmas Backpack Program

Each holiday season, homeless youth receive a backpack full of gifts at our annual youth Christmas party.

Christmas Backpack Program

Our 2017 Christmas Backpack Program was a huge success thanks to our caring donors, volunteers and supporters.  During the Christmas season we gave out close to 300 Christmas Backpacks to youth in need – thank you! Check back in the fall for details about our 2018 campaign. 


Ways to donate to the Covenant House Vancouver Christmas Backpack Campaign:


  1. Contribute to our costs: It costs $150 to fill a backpack with gifts. Help us purchase one whole backpack for a youth in need. Contribute this amount here.
  2. Include us in your holiday shopping: Take the backpack inventory list with you on your holiday shopping trips! Feel free to contribute any or all of the items on our list.
  3. Purchase a completed backpack through Army & Navy: Order the items online through our partnership with Army & Navy and have them shipped directly to us.

We can only accept new, unopened items for the backpacks.

Please do not wrap items or pack the backpacks yourselves. Pack like items together to make it easier on our sorting team!

Please be sure to let us know you plan to support our campaign and when you will be dropping off or having your items delivered.
