Thank You Back to School Drive 2021

BTS Donor Thank You List 2

Thanks to each and every one of you, we have provided over 150 children with necessary school supplies to start their year off right! No matter how children receive their education this year:  in-person or homeschooled - every student deserves the opportunity and resources to learn! Thank you, our generous donors, for contributing to this year’s Back to School Drive. We cannot put into words how grateful we are for our community of selfless and caring people - so thank you for continuing to support the children we serve each year with your kindness.        

Similar to last year, due to the uncertainty of where COVID would take us, our Back to School Drive was held differently. In addition to in-person donations, we brought back our online Wish List where donors could select specific items to be delivered directly to our office. We also offered the opportunity to “sponsor a backpack,” a simple way to help with school supplies by making an online donation. 

We would like to give a special thanks to the Louis and Gloria Flanzer Foundation, for supporting our efforts and DOUBLING each donation made through their website.

We were absolutely overwhelmed with the outpouring of support for our children. We had a fully stocked school supply room ready to offer the students we serve an opportunity to “shop” free of charge for their items. Every gift, regardless of size, helps set these children on the right track to succeed in school. This change wouldn't have been possible without assistance from our community. We can't thank you enough for your help during the current year's school supply drive! 

We welcome donations of all types, as our doors are always open for victims and survivors of domestic violence. Whether time, talent or treasure, we welcome your help for the families in our community who need our services. For a list of items we urgently need, please visit the donations section of our website.
