Start a Collection

You can play a part collecting essential items to provide comfort and support for children and families.

Energetic and dedicated community members are needed to collect new items. Examples of some of the items that will help:

  • Diapers and Baby Items -  Diapers, wipes, formula, board books, onsies, blankets are needed.
  • Preschool Books - Your involvement in collecting books will help children build early learning skills. Consider hosting a new book drive to collect enough books for all the children in our preschools. 
  • Backpacks & School Supplies - Join us in getting a new backpack filled with school supplies to every child.
  • Career Clothing - Gift cards for our young adults to purchase career clothing are needed.
  • Winter Coats - Spearhead a collection of new winter coats for children of all ages.
  • Holiday Gifts - Join us in providing holiday gifts for children.
  • Pajamas - New pajamas for children of all ages. Consider hosting a collection to provide a new pair of pjs and a book for every child at one of our preschool locations.
  • Weekend Food Pack Items - Help us reach more students with weekend food packs. 

Collections are great for companies looking for a volunteer project, students seeking service hours and for churches, community groups, and individuals looking for a way to give back.

Or, consider a monetary donation to the Caring Community Fund. Your monetary gift will make funding available to meet urgent needs for children and families.
