Teachers, parents, and students are all getting ready to head back to school! Fresh notebooks, new pencils, backpacks, and more help kids to feel prepared and excited for the year ahead.

However, for some families, affording the most basic school supplies and uniforms can prove to be a struggle. Through the month of August (August 1 – August 31), Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas will be hosting a Back to School Supply Drive.

School supply, uniform, and gift card donations will be accepted at the Administration building located at 4816 Worth Street in Dallas.
All donations will go home with deserving BGCD Club kids and help parents eliminate the worry of affording supplies for the new school year and instead focus on their child’s academic success.
