United Way of Caldwell County Programs

Backpack Program

Our Weekend Backpack Program is facilitated at the United Way of Caldwell County office and serves several schools in our county. The program is designed to help children who may not have enough food on the weekends and holidays. For more information or if you would like to help, please call 828.758.9300. 

Teacher Treasurers

This program is a resource center that supports Caldwell County public education by providing teachers with supplies and resources at NO COST. Donations from the community and our School Tools partners stock the resource center with supplies that help set up teachers and students for success in the classroom. 


Our goal is to ensure that children and their classrooms in Caldwell County have the basic tools for learning. We do this by transferring, at no cost, community-donated supplies into the hands of teachers for school children in need. Donations from individuals and businesses help keep the shelves stocked with everything from crayons, markers, and glue to items such as backpacks, binders, and craft supplies. Community volunteers assist with stocking shelves, managing inventory, and keeping the resource center running each shopping day.
