Collect & Donate School Supplies

Every little bit helps

Pack the Bus!

The Bus will be located at Yadkin Bank on Blowing Rock Road and Yadkin Bank at New Market Center (cameras will be on site)

Bring School Supplies to the bus during business hours!

Goodwill boxes will be at the buses if you have some gently used thrift store donations you would like offer we can get gift cards in exchange for these items.  You may also bring them to the store and let them know they are for the Back 2 School Festival.

Host a Collection

Churches and Clubs are being asked to collect supplies that are harder to collect. I items such as backpacks, binders, graph paper, index cards,etc.  Please Contact Sandra Ruppert [email protected] if you would like to collect an item with your congregation.  We will let you know what is most needed.


Offer Branded Supplies

If you have branded supplies to offer please bring them to the bus or contact us to see what we need.  [email protected]

Ideas of items we may need:  hand-sanitizer, lip balm,  post-it-notes, pencils, erasers, pens, scratch pads, dry erase markers, to-do lists, folders



We would love to offer gift cards for kids to win to go shopping at local stores.  Many children never get the chance to buy a new pair of jean or shoes.  We gladly accept gift cards to shoe stores or clothing stores.
