Back to School

Back to School

Each year, Partnerships for Children provides over 1,000 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.

It's Summer time and the means the PFC preparations for back-to-school it in full swing. The high cost of school supplies poses a challenge to many parents and impacts students during back-to-school season and beyond!

Each year, Partnerships for Children provides supplies to over 1,000 children in the care of CPS in Central Texas. Whether virtual or in person, having supplies for the first day of school is crucial to the success of these children. We believe every child should be able to attend the first day of school ready to learn without the worry of not having the supplies they need. With all the unknowns surrounding what school will look like this year, we want to commit to providing for these kids to let them know we've got their back.
