The 2018-2019 school year isn’t even over, so why think about school supplies for next year? Because we would like you to consider supporting a Back to School Drive for Circle of Care between now and July 1, 2019. Circle of Care has once again partnered with Citizen’s Caring for Children to provide school supplies for children in foster care. Last year through generous donations of individuals, businesses, community partners and Methodist churches, not only did foster children in Circle of Care foster homes benefit from our annual school supply drive but hundreds of other foster children benefited through Citizen’s Caring for Children’s Back to School event.

Here are a few ideas for helping Circle of Care send foster children back to school with the supplies needed for success:


  • Do a drive as a mission for Vacation Bible School
  • United Methodist Women’s drive
  • Sunday School class drive
  • Church wide donation

If your church would rather donate money for supplies, please write ‘school supplies’ in the memo section of your check and mail to 1501 NW 27th St., Suite 214, OKC, OK 73106, or donate online at and put ‘school supplies’ in the Other Comments field.
