Supplies Needed

Please contact us first by emailing and before dropping off donations to FSP Latrobe, our warehouse, or our office. Thank you!

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 the FSP 2020 R.E.S.P.O.N.S.E Program, 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, 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 FSP Latrobe the 4th Thursday of every month. (Please reach out to and before dropping them off.)

DONATE Household Supplies: A key component of the FSP 2020 R.E.S.P.O.N.S.E Program is family involvement, and we do our part by providing needed resources for parents. You can donate household supplies (e.g., all-purpose cleaner, tissues, hand sanitizer, etc.) for our parent bags.

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.

If you have any questions about donating resources, hosting a book or supply drive, please contact Tommy Hudnall, Volunteer & Donor Coordinator, at
