Before you buy your “Back to School backpack” Consider State Bags! GIVE BACK!
Screen Shot 2016-06-24 at 1.26.29 PM.png

STATE was created to address the immediate needs of American children living with challenging – and in some cases critical – circumstances.

For every STATE bag purchased, STATE hand-delivers a backpack – packed with essential tools for success – to an American child in need; but our commitment goes
beyond simply a material donation.

STATE BAG DROP EVENTS are where the real impact is made. Our team of “PackMen” and “PackWomen” lead motivational rallies that leave participating kids with a renewed spirit and belief in themselves (not to mention brand new STATE backpacks).

STATE Bags is proud to be a Benefit Corporation, accompanied by fellow companies creating public significance by having a material, positive impact on society.
