Project Description

Collection Drives

Arizona Helping Hands utilizes community support for collection drives and in-kind donations as it is an extremely important component of our operation. Below is a complete list of our on-going collection drives and in-kind donations, and we are always open to your ideas or suggestions! We are happy to provide you with a collection drive box as well.

  • Back to School Drive – Arizona Helping Hands provides backpacks filled with school supplies year-round, giving children in foster care the tools they need to succeed. It also is an opportunity to fit in, have a fresh start, and create confidence that can last a lifetime.
  • Birthday Party in a Bag Drive – Oftentimes, children in foster care have never had the opportunity to celebrate a birthday. A Birthday Party in a Bag provides a child with a celebration to accompany the gifts we provide.
  • Book Drive – Each year, Arizona Helping Hands promotes literacy by providing thousands of books to children in foster care.
  • Clothing Drive – Children in foster care often leave home with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Each year, Arizona Helping Hands provides 4,000+ children in foster care with a fresh start and essential items, like clothing.
  • Diaper Drive – In an average week, Arizona Helping Hands provides 3,000+ diapers and 2,500+ wipes to children in foster care.
  • Hygiene Items Drive – Each year, Arizona Helping Hands provides 4,000+ hygiene kits to children in foster care to help them feel confident and healthy.
  • Pajama Drive – Children in foster care often leave home with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Each year, Arizona Helping Hands gives 4,000+ children in foster care a fresh start with essential items, like pajamas.
