Pack your own backpack and send directly to our social workers for distribution.

Little mercies backpack packing list

Here is a list of our current needs:

Please keep in mind that the backpacks need to be small and light if you are sending one for a little person. However, we do have an angel who will repack the back packs as needed.  And, only include what you can, these are simply suggestions. Do NOT pack any breakable, glass or hazardous items.

  • Back pack: gently loved or new

  • New socks and underwear (list size/age and gender on the outside of backpack with a string tag so it is not lost) 

  • New or gently loved shoes

  • New or gently loved stuffed animal

  • Skin cleansing wipes

  • Plastic strip bandages

  • Non-perishable snacks: granola bars, nuts, apple/fruit sauce, fruit leathers, juice/milk box

  • Small pack of crayons/coloring pencils 

  • Pad of paper/coloring book

  • A sweet book in Spanish or a note of kindness to our small travelers.

  • Blanket (since a blanket may not fit in the backpack, it may be easier to make a $5.00 donation on our website).

  • Small rechargeable crank/solar flashlight (if battery powered, please provide an extra set of batteries)

With much gratitude for your generosity,

Nicole, Rebecca, Eric, Barney, LuLu and Angel
