Back to School

Back to School

Each year, Partnerships for Children provides over 1,200 backpacks filled with supplies to children in Central Texas who are in the care of Child Protective Services. This year is more important than ever to ensure we are able to send children back to school prepared to learn and feel a sense of dignity when they walk into their classrooms the first day of school. It is our goal to ensure every child in CPS care has the supplies they need to be successful when they return to school. Over the month of July, we will collect and prepare the supplies to be distributed in early August.

Sponsor a Child

When you sign up to sponsor a child you will be sent information on a specific child including the school they will be attending, their upcoming grade level and interests. This is a new option to make backpacks more personalized to each child and ensure they receive their entire list of supplies. We estimate the cost of sponsoring a backpack at $100 a child. Click below to sign up to receive further instructions on this process along with information on the child(ren) you want to sponsor.

Remember the joy of picking your outfit and backpack out for the first day of school? With children coming into care so close to the start of school, these funds will be used to ensure back to school is just as joyful for the kids we serve. To provide every child a new backpack, new clothing and shoes, and new supplies, we hope to raise $10,000 to help every child thrive in the classroom.
