Back-to-School Drive

As we prepare for the 2022-23 school year, KVC wants to ensure that each child we serve is fully prepared when they return to school in the fall. Over the summer months, we invite you to extend a helping hand to children in your local community by donating new backpacks, pens, pencils, calculators, binders and more to your local KVC office!

By donating a backpack filled with new school supplies, you are giving a child the best possible start to a successful school year!
