Anyone can simply donate material goods, but what truly sets STATE apart is our signature bag drop rallies. Carried out across the U.S. serving hundreds of thousands of students, these high-energy, motivational events are where the real impact is made. STATE's team of PackMen/Women, DJ's and celebrities lead a program filled with dancing, inspiring messages encouraging kids to beat the odds often stacked up against them, and of course fully-packed, school-ready STATE backpacks.

We are constantly finding ways to support American kids, families and communities of need in a variety of ways. We carry out giving initiatives twelve months a year, fueling the work of schools, organizations and causes in which we so deeply believe.

Spread the Love: 2019

Photos & Videos by Tyler Gustin

Our Spread the Love 2019 Initiative had us hitting the road, donating 1,000 fully-packed bags across NYC to orgs we love.

Huge thanks to our charitable partners, Cabrini Immigrant Services, New York Foundling, Hearts of Gold, YAI, Project Renewal and The Ronald McDonald House for making this day so magical... and the companies and customers who helped pack the 1,000 donated bags with essential, requested items to those we served.

We're already counting down the days until our Spread the Love 2020 initiative!
