Donate School Supplies for KC-area Students in Need

Posted on July 27th, 2016 by

Back to SchoolGetting a student “back to school ready” is a challenge for nearly every family, but it’s even more difficult for many Love Fund families.  Facing poverty or the overwhelming expenses of caring for special needs children, school supplies often fall toward the bottom of necessity spending.

Here are two ways you can help the children served by the Love Fund:

  1. Throw a neighborhood “back to school party” and ask guests to donate five of their favorite must-have school items!
  2. Distribute our suggested School Supply List 2016 and place collection boxes in your office, retail shop or place of worship.

While we naturally gravitate to crayons, water colors, glue and pencil boxes, please consider adding some middle school and high school level supplies to your donations, too!

Stage a Love Fund school supply drive within your network and you will help prepare area children with “tools for school” success.

Contact us to let us know we can count on you to help.
