The school-supply drive is in preparation for the annual Back*2*School Bash, when children from kindergarten through 12th grade pick out backpacks loaded with age- and grade-appropriate supplies.

“We make our Back*2*School Bash a celebration of the children and the coming school year, and we have always relied on the generosity of the community to help us collect and fill the backpacks with the supplies the kids will need,” said Save the Family CEO Jacki Taylor. “We want them to start the school ready to learn, and not focus on what supplies they need because they’ll have them.”

Anyone interested in donating or hosting a donation drive should contact Development Manager Maria Longley at 480-466-7714 or email her at maria.longley@savethefamily.org.
