Student Supply Backpacks

We know that you have students that arrive each year without needed supplies. We understand that the need may be greater this year due to the economic hardships currently facing many of our families.  Kumu’s Cupboard will once again provide student backpacks to help with this. This year we have assembled 144 backpacks for grade ranges K-1, 2nd – 5th, and middle school/high school.  The size of the backpacks and the supplies in them vary by grade level range.

How to get a backpack for your student(s)

Classroom teachers can get backpacks for one or two students in YOUR class during the first weeks of school.  Counselors may request backpacks as well.  If your need is greater than two backpacks, please contact Elyse Litvack at kumuscupboard@gmail.com or call 808-639-4675.  Teachers and counselors requesting backpacks must be a registered shopper at Kumu’s Cupboard. 

To make this process easier for you, you can either come into the store to pick up the backpack(s) or email kumuscupboard@gmail.com to reserve them.  Knowing it is hard for some of you to come into the store, especially if you’ve already done your monthly shopping, we will allow a teacher to pick up backpacks for others at their school if those backpacks have been reserved in advance.  Reservations will be taken beginning with the opening of your school year.

Click here to download the registration form. You may email this form or bring it when you come to the store.  Forms will be available at Kumu’s Cupboard. Please DO NOT include the name of the student.

Backpacks will be available while supplies last.

Please understand that this program is not designed to increase your inventory or as something to have in case you get a student with needs. It is designed to help those students that don’t have their supplies.

Kumu's Cupboard Lending Service List

Kumu’s Cupboard Lending Service has a variety of kits available for check out. This list shows the items we stock, but please inquire at Kumu’s Cupboard for the current availability. If you have ideas for the lending service, please let us know what you could use.

NOTE: Our lending service will be temporarily suspended because so many of the items in our kits are difficult to sanitize. We hope to make this service available to you in the coming months. The Resource Center will remain open.
