Back-pack Drive

2014 Toy Drive Update as follows.

  • Blanket drive: SSP delivered 165 blankets to local NPO’s like Sacred Heart Church and Project We Hope
  • As part of the 10th anniversary celebrations, SSP also contributed $500 for blank drive

Shirdi Sai Center is pleased to initiate a backpack (new) and school supplies drive for children in need.  The drive will start on June 19th and will end August 7th.

Backpacks and school supplies, all of which need to be in brand new condition, will be donated to local Bay Area organizations that support underprivileged children.

A container will be placed in the temple lobby for collecting the above mentioned items. If you are providing both backpack and the supplies, we suggest you place the school supplies within the backpack so that it is easy to manage.  Please find attached the suggested list of supplies per grade. You may choose to donate supplies for a particular grade or few of the items. However, please label them accordingly.

If the container is full or you are unable to find it, we request that you give the backpacks to the temple volunteer. Please note that you can also make online donations by clicking on the following link:


Details for online donation are available through the link provided above. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach us @ (408) 909-1221 or send an email to [email protected]
