How You Can Help Youth in Need Get the Best Start to the School Year

donate school supplies

At the start of each school year, many of the children and teens we provide our services to often don’t have access to essential school supplies that are key to academic success. As we prepare for the 2022-23 school year, KVC wants to ensure that each child in our care is fully prepared when they return to school.

We invite you to extend a helping hand to children in your local community by donating new backpacks, pens, pencils, calculators, binders and more to your local KVC office! By donating a backpack filled with new school supplies, you are giving a child the best possible start to a successful school year!

We need your help to provide basic school supplies for children in our community including:donate school supplies

Additional Details:

If you would like to donate supplies, items can be dropped off at the KVC Kentucky office nearest you. To find a local office, please visit our locations page.

We know the summer months are a busy time, so if you don’t have time to shop, please consider helping by making an online donation noted for the back-to-school supply drive, and our volunteers will do the shopping for you! Rest assured that all designated donations will go directly towards purchasing school supplies for children and youth receiving behavioral health services with KVC Kentucky.

The needs of children and families are countless, and KVC could not provide school supplies for every child without individual, community and corporate support and contributions.
