July 30th - 31st, 2021
Sponsor and Volunteer!
Each fall, children living in poverty in the west valley start school in shoes that are too small, pants with holes, or clothing that is not seasonally appropriate. These young people in kindergarten through 12th grade show up without the basic supplies needed to start the school year off ready to learn - making it even more likely that they will fall behind their peers.
We need your help to make sure that doesn't happen!
Adopt a Child
Donations in any amount are accepted. Each child that participates will receive the supplies they need to succeed in the upcoming school year.
If you would like to donate at a later time, please visit our website at and click "Donate Now!" Please choose the Back To School cause or type 'For Back to School Clothing Program' in the "Write a note" section.
We are looking for volunteers to do contactless delivery of backpacks, supplies, and gift cards to the children.
If you are interested in volunteering as a driver there is only one shift available on July 31st at 8 am-noon and you will need to complete the application below. Please have ready a copy of your driver’s license and car insurance handy (image or pdf) to upload and submit below.
