Transportation and Distribution Services is excited to launch our annual "Backpack Give Back" outreach program, designed to encourage the pursuit of higher education by disadvantaged youth in Orange County. You may contribute by donating a new or slightly used backpack to any parking information kiosk, the UCI Bookstore, or a UCI housing community center from May 1st through June 30, 2017.

Please click here for a map of drop locations.

All backpacks will be donated to South County Outreach. South County Outreach is a provider of vital services and assistance to low income families, seniors and individuals in South Orange County.


Do you want to do more?

In addition to participating in this backpack drive, there are many other ways to get involved. The South County Outreach is always willing to receive donations of goods, time, and money. Volunteers to work their various programs are also welcome. Let's show our Anteater pride and let them know how we can help!
