Back 2 School Bash 2020

We are currently collecting back to school supplies for the youth that live in shelter or those who are in our community program.  While most will be experiencing virtual school, we want to start them off right with new supplies so they can put their best foot forward during this difficult back to school season.

For more information or for questions, please email Stephanie.

Supplies Needed

While we gratefully accept any new school supplies, the items to the left, are the ones that are needed the most by our students.

School Supply Drop Off

Schools supplies can be dropped of August 24-28th at Central Baptist Church ( 1200 Hodges Ferry Rd, Portsmouth).  Volunteers will be there each of those days from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM.


Items can also be dropped off anytime between now and August 28th at:

Portsmouth YMCA , 4900 High Street West

New Creation United Methodist Church, 4320 Bruce Rd, Portsmouth

( between 8:30 AM - 11 AM)

Adopt A Child

The goal of our Adopt a Child is to provide our children and youth with a brand new outfit - head to toe!  A brand new stylish outfit helps to get them off to a great start to the new school year.  Even if they are attending school virtually, sitting in front of a camera, they can feel confident.  If you would like to give a child that awesome feeling of a new outfit, click HERE.  New outfits can be dropped off between August 24 and 27th from 10Am - 4 PM at Central Baptist Church (1200 Hodges Ferry Rd, Portsmouth).  If you need an alternate drop off time, please email Stephanie.
