Backpacks and School Supplies for Foster Youth
Aviva Children’s Services works each year to fill backpacks with school supplies for foster youth in Southern Arizona. These backpacks are given at the beginning of the school year and throughout the year.
Why backpacks and schools supplies?
How can I help?
- Individually- donors can send or drop off supplies from the list below.
- Business and Groups- can purchase and collect items and hold a Stuff the Backpack event during a lunch break or evening event. An Aviva representative can make an appearance to help, cheer on the group, and share the importance of why we do these events. We would love to take a photo to share on our social media sites the wonderful work our volunteers do.
- Families- Collecting and shopping for school supplies as a family is a great way to teach and model the benefits of giving back. This gives your children the ability to pick out what they think other kids their age would like.
