Adopt-A-Child for Back-to-School 2021

Adopt-A-Child is a great way to help families prepare for the upcoming school year!

Haven House started the Adopt-a-Child for Back-to-School program close to 20 years ago to provide local children with new clothes and supplies for the start of the school year. In the past, you would be matched with a child based on a certain age/grade or gender you specified and emailed a form which listed their needed clothing items, sizes, and preferences.

Moving forward, donors can select a child from the list below and each child's wish list is linked to their name, so you can download their list to your device right away! Once you have selected a child please email the child # to the Volunteer & Projects Manager so she can remove them from the wish list and keep track of those still in need. Do not begin shopping for your child until you receive an email response in case the child you have selected was adopted and the list is in the process of being updated. Please be sure all clothing items are new with tags and the name of the child is attached to each item and/or the bags you place them in. When you are finished shopping, please call or email to schedule a drop-off during regular business hours. 

We hope you’ll join us in Adopt-a-Child for Back-to-School 2021 in helping each child prepare for a bright school year!

BACK TO SCHOOL WISH LIST: children will be added throughout the summer as their forms are completed

The drop-off window for Adopt-a-Child goes until August 23rd.  

If you would like to participate and have any questions, please email our Volunteer & Projects Manager, Chequoya Thomas, or call her at (517) 348-0691.
