Getting a student “back to school ready” is a challenge for nearly every family, but it’s even more difficult for many Love Fund families. Facing poverty or the overwhelming expenses of caring for special needs children, school supplies often fall toward the bottom of necessity spending. The Love Fund will provide students in the community with the supplies they need to succeed this school year.
Our goal is to give away school supplies to over 1,000 k-12 students in the Kansas City area. In 2017, we were able to provide a backpack and supplies to over 500 kids in the community. We hope to serve every student who applies, but we depend on financial support from donors, businesses, and local organizations in our community.
The Love Fund for Children would like to invite you to participate in our annual School Supply Drive. The drive will run from July 1, 2018 – July 27, 2018, and supplies will be distributed the week of July 30th. You can help out by hosting your own school supply drive benefiting the Love Fund with your friends, family or your company, making a donation, or dropping off supplies to one of our many designated drop-off sites.

Your support is greatly appreciated and we look forward to working with you to help students in our community start the 2018-2019 year off right!
