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.

We are very grateful to have donors who support us in many different ways and if you are looking for a unique way to help our young people supporting our Christmas initiatives are a fun option.

This year we are grateful to have had all the new backpacks donated so we are only looking for items to fill these backpacks. Also our list of needed items has changed from previous years so be sure to check out our updated list. 

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

  2. Purchase a completed backpack through Army & Navy: Order the items online through our partnership with Army & Navy and have them shipped directly to us.  Click to purchase through Army & Navy.
  3. Include us in your holiday shopping: Take our Christmas wish list with you on your holiday shopping trips! Feel free to contribute any or all of the items on our list.

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