Your generosity can equip more than 10,000 children in eastern Missouri with the tools they need for a successful school year, when you collect classroom essentials for our annual Adopt-A-Class School Supplies Drive. Supplies benefit children, teens and families in Youth In Need’s early childhood development services, youth residential programs, foster care case management, school-based counseling, homeless street outreach and positive youth development programs.

The Adopt-a-Class Drive will take place all summer through August 31, 2020. Here you will find a “wish list” of items that enhance learning in our programs. No time to shop? Use the form below to make a designated 100 percent tax-deductible cash donation, which we will use to make bulk and discounted purchases through our vendors. Youth In Need greatly appreciates all donations, but we no longer can accept used items.

If you are interested in organizing a donation drive at home, in your community, at church or at your business, please contact Emily Birgenheier at 636-757-9334.
