Kansas Community Donates School Supplies to Children in Need

Donates School Supplies to Children in Need

Each year KVC Kansas reaches out to local businesses and groups to help supply the children and families we serve with new school supplies. Because of the outpouring of generosity, this year we were able to make sure every child in our care is starting the new school year ready to learn with new backpacks, pencils, crayons, folders, glue, pens and more!

When children enter foster care, they often do not bring with them basic items like a full set of clothes, hygiene items, and luggage. While generous donors make it possible for us to provide these items, the start of a new school year brings similar challenges. Children in foster care and the families that care for them need items like pencils, backpacks and other supplies so that they can focus on learning rather than needing school supplies. Thanks to the generous donations from across the state of Kansas, every child in care was provided with a backpack full of supplies!

KVC Kansas serves over 12,200 children in Kansas and provides services in foster care, family preservation, reintegration, adoption and more. Through KVC’s partnership with the Kansas Department for Children and Families993 Kansas children were safely reunited with their 590 families after foster care last year. We are proud to play a role in strengthening Kansas families and coming alongside them during their time of crisis.

There’s still time to help children start the school year off right. Donate money and supplies to your local office today!
