School Supplies Drive

Support our Youth's Academic Achievement

Make sure that our youth have all the supplies they need to start the school year strong. Donate general supplies or sponsor a youth using the supply lists below.

The biggest way our professional mentors prepare youth for school is by spending time with them month after month, year after year. Another tangible way to help our youth succeed in school is to provide the necessary supplies they need.

Want to support our youth but don’t have time to shop? Purchase something from our Amazon wish list and save yourself the trip! (Be sure to also check-out through Amazon Smile and mark us as your benefiting charity)

You may also support this critical part of our mission with cash donations.

Donate at www.friendsaustin.org

If you'd rather shop in person, our drop-off location is:

Friends of the Children, 1023 Springdale Road, Suite 13C, Austin, TX 78721

Want to get involved in a bigger way?

Lead a school supplies drive at your company or within your department, coordinate with us to be a drop site for donated supplies,
