Our annual Back to School Giveaway provides new backpacks, grade-appropriate school supplies, and free haircuts to local children (Kindergarten through 12th grade) needing assistance in the NW Valley each July.
This past July in Glendale 174 volunteers served 949 children backpacks/supplies, 860 breakfast burritos, and 50 haircuts; in Peoria 22 volunteers served 62 children backpacks/supplies; in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico 100 children were served backpacks/supplies through our church plant there; our Food Bank was provided 100 backpacks to be given out.
Join us next year as a guest or volunteer to help! Also, please spread the word to a family you may know in need.
Donate backpacks (15″, 17″ & 19″), 1″ binders / spiral notebooks in the lobby of either campus in June or early July.
You can also make monetary donations used to purchase grade-appropriate supplies at the lobby table.
Volunteer at the actual events or the pre-event sorting party. There are dozens of ways to volunteer your time and energy! Sign up at a lobby table, or online.
Donations & volunteer sign-up begins in June.
Come to our Glendale campus or NW Peoria giveaway site with your child on the event dates. We recommend arriving early as the line is usually long. When supplies run out, the event is over (usually approx 2-3 hours).
To receive supplies both you and your children must be present and in line.
Pre-registration begins in June.
