Back to School Drive

June 1st - August 2nd

Each year, we hold a donation drive to collect school supplies for the children in our care. The purpose of our Back to School Drive is to ensure each child is sent into the new school year ready for success. What makes our donation drive truly special is that we make sure each child has everything they need – from their personalized school supply-list down to the correct color or style of folders.

An effort like the Back to School Drive thrives due to the generous support of the community we serve and partners like you. If you would like to contribute, there are different ways you can do so, including:

Monetary Donations

Just $25 sends a child to school prepared with the supplies they need. If you would like to contribute financially to the Back to School Drive, click on the donate button below.

Child abuse is preventable
We can help change the lives of many children and teens.

A hallmark of PSF’s system of care is our belief that child abuse is preventable. We have found that by providing resources and supports to families in need on the front end, many can avoid reaching the crises that lead to formal child welfare involvement functions.

Monetary Donations

Monetary donations throughout the year are a huge help to the children we serve. We accept donations by check, which can be mailed to our office or through the PayPal link here.

AmazonSmile

The next time you make a purchase on Amazon, please consider using AmazonSmile and selecting Partnership for Strong Families as the receiving organization.
