Adopt-A-Child for Back to School

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 over 15 years ago to provide local children with new clothes and school 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 received a form which listed their needed clothing items, sizes, and preferences.

This year, we have decided to not match donors to a particular child and create the wish list below which will be updated regularly. Please be sure these items are new with tags and the name of the child is attached to the items. We encourage you to have these items shipped, but you are welcome to arrange a one-time, no contact, drop-off during regular business hours by emailing the Volunteer & Special Projects Coordinator Chequoya Spearman. Once you have selected a child below please email the Volunteer & Special Projects Coordinator so she can remove them from the wish list and keep track of those we still need.

We hope you’ll join us in Adopt-a-Child for Back to School 2020 in helping each child prepare for a bright school year!
