Stuff the Backpack

Stuff the Backpack

COSI is teaming up with NBC4 (WCMH-TV) for the second annual Stuff the Backpack campaign! It’s the largest backpack drive in the country and we need your help to make sure local students are ready to learn at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year. This year the backpack drive is expanding from helping one single district to 25 districts across Franklin and Licking Counties.

Starting June 1st through August 4th, bring a NEW backpack (stuffed with school supplies) to COSI Admissions to receive $4 off general admission per person (for up to four guests). Want to really Stuff the Backpack? Follow the links below for a list of needed school supplies!
