Sometimes the difference between a good school year and a less-than-stellar school year lies in the little things. Especially for a child in foster care. Join AFFCF, Arizona Helping Hands, AASK – Aid to Adoption of Special Kids and VOICES for CASA Children in our goal to provide 5,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to children in foster care. Whether you purchase one backpack or three, you can help a child in foster care begin the school with one less worry. Thank you!


We are pleased to provide backpacks and school supplies for children in foster care and their adopted and bioligical siblings. A Notice to Provider for each child in foster care is required. Group home providers, DCS and Tribal caseworkers are also welcome!
In order to make a request asking for a backpack and school supplies, please register using this form to submit your information. SUBMITTING A REQUEST IS NOT A GUARANTEE THAT THE ORDER CAN BE FILLED. We will send a follow-up e-mail within one week to verify your appointment date and time. The pick up location is in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Families served by AASK (Aid to Adoption of Special Kids) and Voices for CASA Children will receive backpacks and school supplies directly from these agencies; please contact your AASK family specialist or CASA volunteer for any additional information.
