Learn About The Tulsa Free Backpack Program

For many families in Tulsa, the back-to-school season can be financially challenging. Buying backpacks, school supplies, and new clothes can quickly become expensive, especially for families with more than one child.

At Graves McLain, we want to make a difference in a big way in our local community. We founded the “Free Backpack Program” with the mission to donate a free, brand new backpack to students at Tulsa elementary schools every year.

The Oklahoma Association for Justice (OAJ) and its 500+ trial lawyer membership around the State of Oklahoma support and help fund the Backpack Program. It is spearheaded and executed by Graves McLain in Tulsa and Maples Nix & Diesselhorst in Oklahoma City and Edmond.

This important and powerful annual initiative is supported by many organizations including the Oklahoma Association for Justice, the Tulsa Police Department, Tulsa Public Schools, Partners in Education, and All Souls Church.

The 2020 school year kickoff was a huge success and we donated free, brand new backpacks to every student at Dolores Huerta Elementary, McClure Elementary, Unity Learning Academy, Springdale Elementary, and John Hope Franklin Elementary.

Our goal for 2020 was to give away over 2,000 free backpacks, and we reached this goal.

We want to do this each year, so we are actively looking for new sponsors to keep this important initiative going forward. If you would like to become a proud supporter of the Graves McLain Free Backpack Program, please fill out the form below, and someone will contact you with more information.
