We Need Your Help! Donate to Our School Supply Drive
You can help kids experiencing foster care in Minnesota by making a donation to our School Supply Drive! We are accepting school supply donations between June 1-July 21, 2023. Supplies will be provided to children and their families at our Back-to-School Bash on July 29, 2023.
You can visit our Amazon Wishlist and send some supplies our way, or host your own supply drive in your community. If you host a community collection site, we can provide you with signage and lists and help coordinate getting the supplies to our St. Paul, MN office.
Please contact us if you’d like to host a community collection site, and we’ll help you spread the word!
Below is our current list of needs! If you’d like to drop off items, please get in touch with us.
Please note, at this time, we can only take new items.Back-to-School Bash Volunteer Opportunities Amazon Wishlist
