In this unprecedented environment COVID-19 continues to disrupt our day-to-day business operations. In recent days, we have seen increased disruptions in shipping and returned packages due to non-essential restrictions and business closures across the country. This has prompted us to suspend our backpack deliveries. Effective immediately, we will temporarily suspend all shipments of JBF backpacks. It is our hope to return to shipping on or around April 17th, 2020. If you need a backpack for an adoption and you are still accepting deliveries, please email your request with order no. to jbfinfo@jockey.com.

We will continue to process all backpacks orders, and then plan to ship them on or after April 17th, 2020. Thank you for your continued support of the Jockey Being Family Backpack Program and we hope to be back up and running shortly. Stay Healthy!


Jockey Being Family Foundation, Ltd.

Was founded by Debra S. Waller Chairman and CEO of Jockey International, Inc. Jockey Being Family® (JBF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was formed to strengthen adoptive families for successful futures.

Our signature JBF backpack program offers an invaluable opportunity for Adoption agencies, Judges and Legal professionals to talk to families, and provide vital post adoption support resources which can help identify issues early on so they don’t reach a breaking point where the adoption fails. Jockey through Jockey Being Family® has an opportunity to make a significant impact on the adoption community, as we all work towards supporting an adoption friendly world.

With your help, we can achieve the goal of distributing 10,000 backpacks to newly adopted children this year. Plus, we’ll provide ongoing support and training for their new parents to help shape these “forever homes” into lasting places of love.
