You can help send a child or teen back to school prepared with a brand new backpack, school supplies, an outfit or uniform, and shoes.

Thank you for your interest in hosting a Back to School Drive for the children and teens of Child Crisis Arizona. We would like to have these items collected by JULY 7, 2019. We are grateful for your support! Below are the current back to school donation drives you can help collect items for.

Back to School Uniform Gift Card Drive:  We are looking for gift cards in increments of $25 to stores that sell uniforms like Kohl’s, Target, The Children’s Place, Old Navy, Macy’s or JC Penny. These gift cards help us purchase new uniforms for children.

Back to School Shoe & Clothing Gift Card Drive: We are looking for gift cards in increments of $25 to stores that sell teen and child clothing and shoes. Help us empower teens by providing them with gift cards to purchase their own back to school wardrobe.  These gift cards will also be used to purchase clothing and shoes for younger children.

Back to School Backpack Drive: We are looking for backpacks fitting for a teenager or character backpacks (i.e character backpacks such as princess and superheroes) for younger children. Having a backpack that matches their personal style will give kids confidence going into a new school year.
