The 2017-2018 school year isn’t even over, so why think about school supplies for next year? Because we would like you to consider supporting a Back to School Drive for Circle of Care between now and July 1, 2018.

Circle of Care has once again partnered with Citizen’s Caring for Children to provide school supplies for children in foster care. Last year through generous donations of individuals, businesses, community partners and Methodist churches, not only did foster children in Circle of Care foster homes benefit from our annual school supply drive but hundreds of other foster children benefited through Citizen’s Caring for Children’s Back to School event. We have put together a convenient Donation Tool Kit to help you.

If your church would like Circle of Care to shop for the school supplies, we will gratefully accept monetary donations. Please write ‘school supplies’ in the memo section of your check.

To arrange a drive or get more info, please contact Denise Ebersbach, Development Specialist at Circle of Care, 405-613-2276 or denise.ebersbach@circleofcare.org.

Here are a few ideas for helping Circle of Care send foster children back to school with the supplies needed for success:

  • Do a drive as a Mission for Vacation Bible School
  • United Methodist Women’s Drive
  • Sunday School class drive
  • Church wide donation

If your church would like Circle of Care to shop for the school supplies, we will gratefully accept monetary donations. Please write ‘school supplies’ in the memo section of your check.

CAMPAIGN TIMELINE: The campaign to collect new school supplies will run through July 1st
DROPOFF:  Please coordinate drop off with Denise Ebersbach at 405-613-2276 or denise.ebersbach@circleofcare.org
