Back to School Giveaway Rules

Must show PROVIDER ONE CARD and have the child present with their school's supply list for the grade they are entering. While we will not be able to completely fill the child's list, our hope is to give them enough for a good start. This will be open for any resident of Pierce County that is low income with proof from DSHS. We will not be able to make exceptions or send items home for children that are not present. There will be backpacks and school supplies, some new coats and clothing and assorted other freebies. All items are limited and will be issued first come first served. Please check our Facebook page for updates.

Refer to your child's school supply list from their elementary or middle school in Pierce County. Bring that list to us, and we will help you to fill the supply list.
