Help a Child Succeed, Donate Back-to-School Supplies

Kids in Your Community Need Backpacks, School Supplies


button_donateInvest in their Success

Kids in your neighborhood and throughout California are starting school within the next few weeks. It can be a time of excitement, but for some, back to school time can lead to anxiety. There are children in your community who have endured social, physical, and emotional hardships and need your help.

With your donations, we provide needed school supplies, clothing and shoes, and fund essential programs allowing boys and girls to overcome abuse and neglect, and thrive in school and at home. If their suffering goes unaddressed, the cycle of abuse, addiction, homelessness, and mental illness will continue to put a strain on already limited government services. Without the right school supplies, it will be even harder for these kids to start the year off right.

With Your Help, Kids Will Have a Good Start to the Year

Please consider making a gift to our children this school year. With your donation, we can make a measurable and lasting difference in the life of troubled children and their families.

You can help by purchasing a new backpack and supplies to drop off at one of our offices. Or you can make a secure, online donation toward ongoing programs that help vulnerable kids and their families.

Here's How You Can Help

Donations of backpacks and school supplies can be made at the following locations. Please read our list of suggested supplies for all age groups. Please remember when donating a backpack, neutral colors such as black, white and grey are preferred. Thank you for all you do to help kids in crisis!
