Can you imagine deciding between food and electricity for your family or backpacks and other items necessary for your child to go back to school? Each year many parents must face these exact choices. For students who are already struggling, having basic school supplies can make a HUGE difference! Our purpose is to send kids back to school with pride! Annually, we provide nearly 3,000 children in Thurston County with the supplies they need to succeed in school. This task requires many volunteer hours and lots of money!

We are accepting donations now through August 14. Please look for the bin in the Gathering Space. You can also make a monetary donation at
