STATE – GIVE – BACK – PACK Event. For Every Bag Purchased a Backpack is Given to a Child in Need


A Caravan Stylist Studio we always love to support great causes and the amazing NYC based company named STATE is exactly that. Caravan’s interns had the chance to check out this great event hosted by STATE.

STATE was created to address the immediate needs of American children living with challenging – and in some cases critical – circumstances. For every STATE bag purchased, STATE hand-delivers a backpack – packed with essential tools for success – to an American child in need.

The event on this Tuesday morning began with blasting music as the children made their way into the gymnasium. The room boiled up with energy instantly, putting a smile on everyone’s faces. After all the children settled in the STATE has ambassadors called PackMen who took over the mic. They began by playing games and sharing encouraging stories from their lives about how they overcame obstacles to better themselves and to make positive decisions. It was all about having fun and getting everyone involved, including the adults in the room. After an hour of activities the rest of the PackMen and PackWomen surprised the children by giving away nearly 300 backpacks filled with goodies such as snacks, socks and school supplies. The positive energy was contagious; it was hard to leave the event without an overwhelming feeling of joy.



STATE BAG DROP EVENTS are where the real impact is made. Their team of “PackMen” and “PackWomen” lead motivational rallies that leave participating kids with a renewed spirit and belief in themselves (not to mention brand new STATE backpacks).STATE

STATE Bags is proud to be a Benefit Corporation, accompanied by fellow companies creating public significance by having a material, positive impact on society.

STATE has partnered with a variety of influencers and brands such as Beyonce, Twitter, The Honest Company, American Eagle, and many more. 

Founders of STATE is a partnership between husband and wife duo, Scot and Jacqueline Tatelman. Scot and Jacq created STATE as a for-profit company with a nonprofit pedigree.

These Brooklyn-based social entrepreneurs have eyes trained for style but their hearts have always been with kids growing up in America’s most at-risk neighborhoods.

After watching countless kids carrying their possessions in trash bags, Scot and Jacq formed STATE – a company that promises to not only deliver much needed supplies, but to also provide them with the tools to reach their fullest potential and better their communities. And to always have their backs.

Whether it’s exclusive collections, corporate gifting or production “wrap gifts,” collaborations of all types have fueled our mission to give back to local kids in need.
