Seasonal Giving


Join us throughout the year to help make these occasions even more special:

July through September:  Back to School Donation Drive
Help our students and teachers start the year off on the right foot!  When school starts in September and we need our clothing bank and school supplies stocked up and ready to go.  Each student receives new socks and underwear, a pair of shoes, and a few outfits to get them started for the year.  They also receive all the school supplies they need.

Teachers also have special requests. They need books, notebooks, whiteboard markers, easel pads and many other goodies.  You can also send us a back to school donation to help meet our goal. Please contact Joyce at to find out what our greatest needs are.

November & December:  Holiday Giving
There are so many ways to help make the holiday season a bright and joyous one for First Place families:

  • Adopt-a-Family and you will receive a “wish list” from a First Place family. This gives you the opportunity to help make one family’s dreams come true for the holidays. Most families wish for clothing, toys, household items, gift cards and so on.
  • Adopt-a-Classroom and help provide much-needed supplies that enhance the learning experience for our students. Our hardworking teachers are THRILLED to receive supplies that help bring classroom learning to the next level.

Both of these options are great for individuals and families as well as offices or houses of worship. For more information, contact Joyce at
