Supplies Needed

Ensure another summer of fun and learning for our scholars by donating easy to find, much-needed supplies! Each month, you can donate supplies (classroom and household items) and books to support our programs, which are collected the 4th Thursday of every month. Here’s how you can help:

DONATE Classroom Supplies: At the beginning of Freedom School, each scholar and Servant Leader Intern is provided with the basics needed for success (e.g., construction paper, glue, scissors etc.). Purchasing specific items on the collection list is a cost-effective way to help while doing your routine shopping!

DONATE Books: To help our scholars develop a love of learning through reading, we provide them with books every week during Freedom School, helping them build a personal library at home. To donate new or gently-used books appropriate for students’ grades K-8, simply drop them off at the Freedom School Partners office (1030 Arosa Ave.) the 4th Thursday of every month.

DONATE Household Supplies: A key component of Freedom School is family involvement, and we do our part by raffling giveaway bags at parent meetings throughout the summer. You can donate household supplies (e.g., all-purpose cleaner, tissues, hand sanitizer, etc.) for our parent meetings.

Scholar and Servant Leader Intern snacks:Show appreciation for our scholars’ and Servant Leader Interns’ hard work by providing them snacks once a week. Please contact our office at (704) 371-4922 for more information about providing nutritional snacks to fuel learning.
