If your organization / church is interested in supporting a specific area of need, please contact us! (for example, if you want to collect a single item such as shoes, socks, notebooks, etc).

Looking for locations to put collection bins! If your business is willing to be a collection location, please contact us. Bins will be in place for the month of July and donations will be collected by a member of our staff at least weekly.

In 2018, 314 children (along with their parents) attended this event. In 2019, we saw over 400 children! This year, we expect 500+ kids and we do not want any to leave without a new pair of shoes and a backpack full of supplies. Can you help? Fill in the form below and let us know how.
