Back to School Drop Off Deadline Extended

July 16, 2009
Back To School Donations

It’s not too late to help inner city kids in our Back to School program because we’ve extended our drop off deadline to Wednesday, July 29th!

This year, Back to School will provide 1,200 boys and girls with backpacks full of supplies as well as uniforms and shoes to make the first day back to class a good one. The uniforms and supplies are rolling in, but our biggest need is the actual backpacks.

As of today, we’re still short 650 backpacks and our distribution event on August 1st is just a few weeks away. We are fortunate to partner with M&I Bank and Scottsdale Bible Church, who are both collecting backpacks at their drop off sites to help us meet our goal.

If you’d like to donate backpacks, you can drop them off at:

Scottsdale Bible Church
7601 Shea Boulevard
Scottsdale, AZ 85260
PRM Truck in South Parking Lot
Sunday, July 26th, 7:30AM– 12:00PM

      Thank you, David! It definitely helps, thank you for spreading the word. Our hope is that people are just waiting until the last minute to bring their backpacks and supplies down.

    We just finished a backpack drive for the children that are part of the Chandler Schools Homeless/Migrant. Saturday night was a large outreach/distributio event. Great news we gave out nearly 400 and have about 100 left that we’d like to donate to you. Is the best thing for us to get them to you or can you arrange to have them picked up at our location?

      Marty, that’s great! We can definitely use them.
      The best thing is to call Beth at 602 346 3341 – she should be able to arrange a pickup for you.
      Thank you for thinking of us, what a blessing!
