Back to School Drive

Going to school is a great opportunity for children to receive an education and socialize with their peers. Many are excited to see their friends again and look forward to what the new school year brings. Sadly, going back to school can be a hardship on many families who are unable to provide the essential tools to help their children succeed.

Every year, we assist families and their school-aged students with backpacks and school supplies during our Back to School Drive. Throughout the years, we have helped hundreds of students all across Gwinnett County.

The Back to School drive for 2023 has passed!
Please check back in 2024 for updated details.

This year, we are helping families with students from ages 6 to 16, and a maximum of 4 students per family. To request supplies, you will need to provide proof of residence in Gwinnett County and a Spring 2024 report card for each child.

Although we’d like to help every family who reaches out to us, we have limited resources, and many families sadly aim to take advantage of our generosity. The proof of residency and report card are our way of ensuring that those who truly need the help are able to receive it.

After signing up, we will provide more details as to the date, time, and location of the Back to School Distribution.
