Back to School Supply Drive

screen (3).jpg

Getting a student “back to school ready” is a challenge for nearly every family, but it’s even more difficult for many Love Fund families. Facing poverty or the overwhelming expenses of caring for special needs children, school supplies often falls toward the bottom of necessity spending. With your help The Love Fund will provide students in the community with the supplies they need to succeed this school year.

Our goal is to give away school supplies to over 5,000 K-5 students in the Kansas City area. Last year, we were able to provide a backpack and supplies to over 600 kids in the community. We hope to serve every student who applies, but we depend on financial support from businesses, organizations, and people like you.

The Love Fund for Children would like to invite your company to participate in our annual School Supply Drive. The drive will run from July 1, 2019 – August 4, 2019 and supplies will be distributed August 10th during the Back to School Bash at Silverstein Eye Center Arena's in Independence, MO.

Organize a drive of your own! It’s the best way to give back to these students in our community. All you need is the the general information and school supply list to get started! Collection dates and drop off locations are below!

Your support is greatly appreciated and we look forward to working with you to help students in our community start the 2019-2020 year off right. Text LoveFundKC to 243725 to donate or click the button below!
