The families we serve have needs year-round, not the least of which are back-to-school supplies.
Become a sponsor. By sponsoring a backpack, you'll be helping to provide disadvantaged children in our community a strong start for the school year. Each child you sponsor will receive a backpack containing three new outfits and age appropriate school supplies such as pencils, rulers, binders, notebook paper and much more. The cost to sponsor a backpack is $35.00 (Per Child). You may send your donation to P.O. Box 2441, Johnson City, TN 37605 or you may donate online, or you can call 423-928-1958 to donate over the phone.
We begin accepting applications for the back-to-school program at the same time as the summer food program, the second week of April. To fill out the application please visit us at 100 N Roan Street or our Piney Flats location 331 Industrial Road.
If you have any questions please feel free to call our office at 423-928-0288.
