All children should have the school supplies they need to feel confident and prepared in the classroom. Unfortunately, for over 60,000 California foster kids, a sudden change of homes can mean starting over at a new school without the tools they need to succeed.
Simple yet essential items such as a comfy new backpack, a box of sharp crayons or a colorful new binder can give foster children the confidence they need to make a fresh start at a new school.
You can help local foster children get a positive start to the school year — bring your gift of new backpacks, paper, pens, art supplies, binders and more to a Sleep Train store, or donate online today.
One of the most hands-on ways to get involved and support the current or upcoming donation drive is to host your own donation drive for foster kids. We will provide printable poster art and templates for emails and social media posts to help spread the word about the current or upcoming drive.
Sleep Train’s Clothing Drive collected over 18,500 items!
Our 2014 Clothing Drive brought in over 18,500 clothing items. Thank you to everyone who donated and to those who hosted their own clothing drives.
Not everyone can be a foster parent, but anyone can help a foster child.™
