Help Out the Depelchin Children’s Center School Supply Drive

The Depelchin Children’s Center is holding a school supply drive to gather the supplies the kids need for the upcoming school year. In additon to adoption, foster care, and counseling services, Depelchin also operates a residential treatment center with a school. I’ve been helping out at the Depelchin Children’s Center for a couple of years now and have seen some amazing progress with the kids. It’s a remarkable program. If you would like to help out with the school supplies, you can bring the supplies to the main campus between July 31 and August 4 or you can make a cash donation online.

Depelchin School Supply Drive Instructions and Logistics

Each year, children start the first day of school without the supplies they need to succeed. This year, we want to make sure this does not happen for the hundreds of children at DePelchin Children’s Center.

Starting July 31 and running through August 4, DePelchin is requesting school supplies for our children. Please purchase items from the following list and bring them to DePelchin’s main campus 8 A.M. – 5 P.M.

    Awesome! I’m getting about 200 3-ring binders this weekend and needed a place to donate them. Good post :)
