What is in a backpack?

I Belong Bags thrives of the support and effort from caring community members like yourself. Check out our Donation Drives page to see a full list of what children receive in their backpacks.

All items can also be purchased from our Amazon Wish List.

How do I donate?

New Items

New items can be dropped off at our permanent donation bins, found at three Sentinel Storage locations in Calgary.

Or Contact us directly to arrange a pick up.

Monetary Donations

Monetary donations help us to bridge the gap in essential backpack items that we might not have enough of. It also helps us to fund the creation of additional initiatives like The Change of Clothes Program.

Skip the Depot

By downloading the Skip the Depot app, you can schedule a pick-up of your recycling, Skip the Depot will take it to the bottle depot and provide you a breakdown of the counted return, and you can choose to donate the funds directly to IBB.

We have teamed up with Skip the Depot for an easy way for you to donate bottles, cans, clothing, electronics, and more directly to IBB!
