Single Parent Advocate 7th Annual Back to School Supply Drive

Single Parent Advocate School Supply Drive 2017 keep calm going back to school


School may be out for the summer, but our School Supply Drive is already underway!

"Back to School" supply lists create an added expense and stress on the families we support and can easily cost $100 for one child alone. Our goal is to fill over 200 backpacks with the supplies required by local schools, to the children we serve.  Help us give our kids a great start for their upcoming school year.

Donations can be dropped off at any Humperdink's Restaurant or Huffines Auto Dealership in the DFW Area.  

Please also plan to attend our volunteer party where we will pack supplies and prepare them for families.  It will be held on Saturday, August 5th.  You can click and sign up on the Single Parent Advocate Back to School Event Facebook Page, or Single Parent Advocate Meet Up Events - Back to School 2017

School Supply Survey

The Back to School Team is looking for feedback on our school supply program. If you participated last year with school supplies, can you please reply to us with the answer to the following questions?

1. Are there items we provide that you do not use? If so, how old is your child and what did you not use? It is ok if you list a few items.

2.Are there items we need to consider adding because you needed them? If so, how old is your child and what do you need? It is ok if you list a few items.

You can join us to help with this event also when you reply. We will need help gathering and sorting donations. It is a ton of work, and even a little goes a really long way, so join us!
