Donate to Children in Foster Care & Help Them Start the School Year with Confidence

As the children and families we serve prepare for the 2024-25 school year, KVC wants to ensure that each child in our care is fully prepared when they return to school in the fall. Over the summer months, we invite you to extend a helping hand to children in your local community by donating new backpacks, pens, pencils, calculators and more to your local KVC office. Donate to children in foster care and provide essential supplies they need for a successful academic year. Make a difference today!

By donating a backpack filled with new school supplies, you are giving a child the best possible start to a successful school year!

We are accepting donations until August 23.
