Back-To-School Supplies

Provide Help for Local Students

Summer is in full swing but the burden of back-to-school expenses, like 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) or Walmart and Target gift cards for $20 or $25 to be used for back-to-school shoes, these are the greatest needs. 

Other supplies in high need are college-ruled binder paper, pocket dividers for 3-ring binders, sets of colored markers, sets of colored pencils, highlighter markers, post-it notes and 2 inch or 1 inch sized 3 ring binders.  

To help please contact Becky - ffccsdlocal@gmail.com. She can advise you of the August 1st drop off location.

 
OPPORTUNITIES TO GET INVOLVED

 Homeless Outreach Is Changing Nights

Join Us on the LAST Monday Night of the Month

On July 29th. FFCC is hosting a barbecue out on the patio at the Salvation Army downtown. Thank you Dream Dinners for providing carne asada tacos. It will be a great evening to bring your family to come and serve. We need barbecue grillers, servers and ice cream scoopers!

We encourage you not to come empty handed. Do you have blankets or sleeping bags to donate? How about new or gently used men's jackets, sweatshirts, pants or shoes? Other useful donations are ball caps, sunblock, sunglasses, hygiene kits or water bottles. Have you read a good book recently and are finished with it. Bring it downtown and let one of our guests read it. There are lots of ways to contribute.

If you would like more information about the evening contact Kim Witham at withams@sbcglobal.net.
