Want to make a difference?
When a child is displaced from home, your contributions can help quickly resolve their basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter, while supporting their continued focus on education. If you’re planning to collect supplies, please review our Urgent Needs page to confirm our current most critical needs.
Host a Fundraiser
Hosting a fundraiser is a great way to ensure our students’ needs are met throughout the year. Successful ideas have included bake sales, sports tournaments, 5K’s, golf tournaments, raffles, and auctions.
Looking for more ideas? Check out our Fundraising Toolkit.
Conduct a Donation Drive
Our children’s critical needs vary throughout the year depending on the season, the point in the school year and the generosity of the community. Depending on the needs and the time of the year, there are different donations needed so please make sure you reach out to us to give guidance in coordinating your drive. Our staff and limited storage space can be overwhelmed when an unexpected overabundance arrives, even if it meets our client children’s basic needs (public school uniform items, snacks, toiletries, and school supplies).
Donate Your Time
School Deliverers: Deliver supplies and donations to a designated school on a regular basis, from twice a week to once a month. Deliverers can drop off their own donations or pick up from the office. Note that deliverers are only needed during the school year (September – May).
On-call Volunteers: Support special events, represent the agency, or assist with other needs that arise throughout the year.
