About SupplyBank.org 

Mission Statement

SupplyBank.org works through trusted local partnerships to strengthen the social safety net and deliver essential supplies to children and families in need.

Vision 

All people have the essential supplies they need.

Background 

SupplyBank.org centralizes procurement and in-kind donations to provide upwards of $3 worth of necessities for every $1 invested. In the few years prior to the Pandemic, the Organization provided more than $65 million worth of materials including diapers, hygiene supplies, school supplies and various PPE to hundreds of thousands of low-income children and families throughout California. Our largest programmatic footprint remains in the Bay Area, but with significant growth in all 58 counties. 

By distributing materials through a statewide network of partnering agencies that provide additional resources supporting pathways out of poverty, we aim to both alleviate the immediate symptoms of poverty, while incentivizing families to participate in programs that provide pathways towards self-sufficiency. Leveraging existing investments into the safety net enables SupplyBank.org to distribute critical materials through an existing and trusted infrastructure with a leg up approach (no line), while minimizing our operational costs.

Oakport Street Project – Oakport.org 

Our next phase will begin with the completion of the Oakport Street Project Oakport.org, which will include our new 120,000 sq. ft. distribution center, 160,000 sq. ft. nonprofit center, 24 hour childcare for employees, massive murals, a two-acre rooftop farm and reentry job training program with permanent placements. With its completion, our programs for poverty alleviation, immediate disaster relief and others will scale to meet regional and statewide needs. See more at www.oakport.org.

COVID Response 

Since the onset of the Pandemic, SupplyBank.org utilized its relationships with numerous state agencies, FEMA representatives and several other local agencies to establish and support 58 county specific emergency supplies programs totaling several million dollars each quarter. While they vary in distribution points, all partner with each respective County Children and Families Commission, childcare providers for essential personnel, COEs and other programs through public health/social services agencies. Thousands of organizations throughout the state are beneficiaries and several Counties made supplemental appropriations towards the effort to increase scope and impact.
