Welcome to Donate-A-Pack!


Periodically throughout the year, Donate-A-Pack has fundraising events. These events help us collect money that we use in purchasing gear that is frequently requested but seldom donated like sleeping bags, pads and tents. So join us at  these upcoming events... as a participant or a volunteer.
