Donate to Our Back to School Drive

The Back to School Program began as an annual event to provide support to children in foster care and their families before the start of the new school year. Because children in foster care typically leave their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs, a new backpack with school supplies may be needed at any time throughout the year. Knowing these items are essential for a child’s academic success, Arizona Helping Hands expanded the annual Back to School Drive from an event to a year-round program. Today, just as many backpacks are given throughout the year as they are at the Back to School Distribution hosted in the summer.

Planning for the 10th Annual Back to School Drive is underway!

July 13 – 14, 2022

Collection Drive
June through August

All donations are tax deductible. Only with your help can we look forward to ensuring that children in foster care will begin their next year with the tools they need to be successful.

“Back to School Ready!”

A brand new, fully stocked backpack helps children in foster care feel comfortable and confident! A brand new backpack is a right of passage every child should enjoy on the first day of school. Your donation of $35 or more, will provide a child in foster care with a new backpack full of school supplies. More importantly, it will create confidence that can last a lifetime. Thank you for your support. Together, we are making a difference!
