Just a few short months ago, COVID-19 caused a dramatic effect on the end of the school year for the children of our community. While the year ahead may be clouded with uncertainty, we do know one thing for sure. No matter what type of classroom setting children will be presented with come fall, they are very much in need of supplies and resources to set them up for a successful year of learning, and this year, the need is greater than ever before.

Do you remember what it was like starting a brand new school year with a fresh set of school supplies?

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. We have shifted gears to make this year’s fair a “Drive Through Edition”. A single $30 donation buys schools supplies for one child for our annual Back to School Fair. Donate by August 7th to make sure no child who has experienced abuse or neglect goes back to school unprepared.

How you can help

  • Purchase a Supply Pack Below – For only $30, you can provide a child with the school supplies they need to start their school year right

Please note funds received in excess of amount needed for the fair will be applied to the area of great need to help children victimized by abuse. Thank you for your generosity!
