About ACHIEVEability

Support Our Backpack Donation Drive

At ACHIEVEability, we work hard every day to serve the Haddington and Cobbs Creek communities, and to support our families on their journey toward self-sufficiency. We understand that education is the key to success. The 38 parents in our program who earned degrees over the past two years, and their children who stayed in school, are proof that hard work can make a difference!


To continue aiding families in achieving their academic goals, ACHIEVEability provides backpacks filled with school supplies to children in our Family Self-Sufficiency Program and our local West Philadelphia community. Last year, we supported nearly 1,500 children with this drive. 

This year, we are aiming to help even more children! Please join us in supporting our youth by making a donation to this drive. All donated backpacks should be new and may include the following supplies: spiral bound notebooks, loose leaf paper, composition books, folders, pens, pencils, highlighters, calculators, pencil sharpeners, glue, erasers, scissors, crayons, etc. 

We are asking for all donated backpacks and supplies to be delivered/picked up by Thursday, August 12th. For more information, please contact Brian Hoskins at 215-748-8814 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
