Backpack and School Supply Drive

Every summer, Family Resource Center provides backpacks full of school supplies for the upcoming school year to all of our school-aged children in foster care.  This year, we need to put together 900 backpacks!

Learn How to Get Involved


  • Make a cash donation to FRC for the purchase of school supplies. All donations are needed and appreciated but $25 will cover a backpack and all supplies for one child.
  • Contribute school supplies from the wish list below.
  • Host Your Own Backpack Drive at your workplace, church, or community organization. Email to let us know about your drive and schedule a day/time for drop off.
All supplies need to be dropped off no later than Friday, July 14th.
