Each year the SDSY and USD Chapters and the Alumni Board meet at SDSU or USD to stuff backpacks with school supplies for disadvantaged students.

Fifty backpacks are donated each year. Thus far, backpacks have been distributed to a orphanage in Mexico, the Polinsky Center, the Monarch School, Linda Vista Middle School, Cajon Middle School, Hamilton Elementary School, and Oak Park Elementary School.
