SupplyBank.org is a collaborative and innovative non-profit agency that provides essential goods and services to children and families in vulnerable communities throughout California.
SupplyBank.org replicates the Food Bank model and applies it to the delivery of basic tangible needs to children and families facing challenging situations. We seek to permanently and effectively transform the way people receive what they need to thrive.
SupplyBank.Org centralizes procurement and in-kind donations to provide upwards of $3 worth of necessities for every $1 invested. In few years prior to the Pandemic, the Organization provided more than $27 million worth of materials including diapers, hygiene supplies, school supplies and refurbished laptops to hundreds of thousands of low-income children and families throughout California. Our largest programmatic footprint remains in the Bay Area, but with significant growth in all 58 counties.
By distributing materials through a statewide network of partnering agencies that provide additional resources supporting pathways out of poverty, we aim to both alleviate the immediate symptoms of poverty, while incentivizing families to participate in programs that provide pathways towards self-sufficiency. Leveraging existing investments into the safety net enables SupplyBank.Org to distribute critical materials through an existing and trusted infrastructure with a leg up approach (no line), while minimizing our operational costs.
