CAP Agency provides students of the families we serve with the tools they need for success in the classroom. Children are given a brand new backpack filled with supplies and books, packed by our community volunteers.
The backpack distribution takes place every year in August/September. Backpacks and school supplies are collected June – August.
You must live in Scott, Carver, or Dakota County and have children in school (up to 12th grade). The program is open to current CAP clients.
Families sign up with CAP program staff. Sign-ups are now open for 2023! Please contact your CAP Agency program to enroll.
Pickups can be scheduled with the staff member with whom you signed up for the program beginning August 7th.
