Backpack Project

You can donate to this project any time of the year!


Membership contribution ensures another year’s successful project!

Mariposa AAUW donated 60 packs filled with school supplies to students of Mariposa County. 44 were distributed at the Health Fairs and the 16 remaining were brought to each of the schools in our district.


Overwhelming support adds to this year’s successful project!

This year our branch not only provided filled backpacks for many middle school students at each school in Mariposa County Unified  School District, but we also distributed packs at the John C. Fremont Back to School Health Fairs.

Members volunteer an afternoon to fill backpacks with items a middle school student would most likely need.

Filling the Backpacks


This year through the continued donations of time, funds, and supplies of our branch members, community members, and donations from community organizations, our branch was able to expand the project to include children whose homes were structurally damaged or destroyed by the Detwiler Fire.

Branch members proudly display some of the backpacks filled at our annual Fill Day at MES
