Backpack Drive for Foster Children

Going back to school again this fall will likely still look different for students due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately for children in foster care, it’s another obstacle they will need to overcome to succeed in the classroom.

We want to set up foster children for success by providing them with all of the back-to-school supplies they will need to get the year started on the right foot.

Now through July 1st, we are accepting backpack and school supply donations for the foster children that we serve. We’ve made back to school shopping easy – download our school supply checklist and take it shopping with you. Then, drop your donations off at any Christian Family Care office or Thrift Store so that we can distribute them to each family who needs one.

Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, we ask that only new, unopened items be donated.

Or, if you would prefer, a donation allows us to buy the supplies needed to put together backpacks.
