Host a Fundraiser – Hosting a fundraiser is a great way to ensure our students’ needs are met throughout the year. Successful ideas include “Pay to Wear Jeans on Fridays”, bake sales, sports tournaments, 5K’s, golf tournaments, raffles and auctions.

Fundraising and event questions, email Jen Diederich at jdiederich@achildsplace.org.

Conduct a Donation Drive – Our children’s critical needs vary throughout the year depending on the season, the point in the school year and the generosity of the community.  Depending on the needs and the time of the year, there are different donations needed so please make sure you reach out to us to give guidance in coordinating your drive. Our staff and limited storage space can be overwhelmed when an unexpected overabundance arrives, even if it meets our client children’s basic needs (public school uniform items, snacks, toiletries and school supplies).

**Please check our URGENT NEEDS list for guidance.**
