We recognize the importance of education for the children of our community, and the vital role educators play in the lives of children. Teachers are the number one reporters of child abuse, keeping countless children safe each year. We are only beginning to see the dramatic effect that COVID-19 has caused in our community. It is important that we ensure the children we serve are well-equipped for the new school year, no matter the setting. Our annual Back to School Fair provides more than 700 children with the supplies and resources they need for success. We look forward to helping the children of our community start the school year off right on Saturday, July 31st.

About the Fair

Each year, our Back To School Fair equips hundreds of children who are clients of Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County or Child Protective Services for the new school year by providing them with brand new backpacks and school supplies. A single $30 donation buys school supplies for one child. Donate by July 30th to make sure no child who has experienced abuse or neglect returns to school unprepared.

Get Involved

Donation Drive: Collect backpacks and/or funds to purchase school supply packs. You can also collect funds to purchase needed items from our Amazon Wishlist.

Donations will be accepted from 9am to 5pm Monday, July 26th and Tuesday, July 27th at 2205 Los Rios., Plano, TX.

School Supply Packs:  For only $30, you can provide a child with the school supplies they need to start their school year right.

Sponsorships: We would love to talk to you about the impact a sponsorship could have on a child’s academic success.
