Backpacks & School Supplies

Help Provide for Local Students

Summer is in full swing but the burden of Back to School expenses, with necessary clothes, shoes, backpacks, and school supplies is already weighing heavy for many local families. 

For many years now, FFCC has assisted Poway Unified School District families by helping to fill the gap of supplies and clothing.  If you would like to contribute a new, neutral-colored backpack,  especially for students aged 10 to 17, this is the greatest need.  We are also collecting Walmart and Target gift cards to be used for Back to School shoes. Other items in great need are college-ruled binder paper, pocket dividers for 3-ring binders, sets of colored pencils, highlighter markers, post-it notes and pink pearl erasers.  

If you would like to contribute any of these school supplies, please respond by August 1st.  You can contact Mary Cushing-Inman at MaryCushing.InmanFFCC@gmail.com for more information.
