Our annual Back to School Giveaway provides new backpacks & grade-appropriate school supplies to local children (Kindergarten through 12th grade) needing assistance each July.
This year the give-away will be a drive-thru that follows social distancing guidelines, including attendees staying in their vehicles, volunteers wearing masks. Also, the school age child MUST be present with their parent/guardian to receive their backpack and supplies.
Last year 183 volunteers served 1,123 children backpacks/supplies, 900 breakfast burritos, and 40 haircuts here in Glendale; in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico 100 children were served backpacks/supplies through our church plant there; our Food Bank was provided 70 backpacks to be given out.
Donate backpacks (17″ & 19″), 1″ binders, & spiral notebooks at the office during regular office hours.
You can also make monetary donations via check or online and be sure to designate them “Back to School Give-away.”
Volunteer. We’ll need volunteers to help sort, count, and stuff backpacks with supplies on Thurs, July 9 and Fri, July 10 as well as lots of volunteers to help on the morning of the event, Sat July 11.
Volunteer sign-up is now closed. Donations can be dropped off at the office during the week, especially supplies.

Drive-thru our campus with your child on the event date. We recommend arriving early as the line is usually long. When supplies run out, the event is over (usually approx 2-3 hours).
RSVP so we can plan, but please understand that an RSVP does not guarantee you will receive a backpack or school supplies (it’s first come, first served). Also, to receive, you and your children must be in the car.
Pre-registration begins in June.
