How to Help
We're ready to provide children with an unforgettable first day of school. Are you? You can help in three easy steps:
Choose a sponsorship level.
$5,000 brings a yellow school bus to your workplace and sponsors an existing closet for the school year.
$2,000 brings a yellow school bus to your workplace.
$500 goes towards supporting a new closet.
Let the donations flow.
Rally your employees to donate their lightly-used clothing and new shoes and new full size toiletries at your location. We'll send you customized flyers and donation boxes so your employees know exactly what to give. Check out "RESOURCES FOR CORPORATE SPONSORS" below for tools and tips for the biggest engagement.
Make it an event.
Collect as many items as possible! If your company has chosen a $5,000 or $2,000 sponsorship, we'll arrange our big yellow bus to arrive at your location where your employees will fill the bus with the donations collected in your office. If your company is hosting a drive without sponsoring the yellow bus, we'll arrange an appropriate pick-up with you.
