Make a cash donation to the annual Adopt-A-Class drive.

Your generosity can equip more than 9,000 children in eastern Missouri with the tools they need for a successful school year, when you collect classroom essentials for our annual Adopt-A-Class School Supplies Drive. Supplies benefit children, teens and families participating in Youth In Need’s early childhood development services, youth residential programs, foster care case management, in-school counseling, homeless street outreach and before- and after-school youth development programs.

School should be inspiring and exciting! The most successful businesses provide their employees the necessary supplies to work effectively and students require the same. Help us inspire the next generation to reach their fullest potential by providing the tools they need to thrive in the classroom!

The Adopt-a-Class Drive will take place all summer through August 31, 2018. Here you will find a “wish list” of items that enhance learning in our programs. No time to shop? Supporters may also make a designated 100 percent tax-deductible cash donation, which we will use to make bulk and discounted purchases through our vendors. Youth In Need greatly appreciates all donations, but we no longer can accept used items.

If you are interested in organizing a donation drive at home, in your community, at church or at your business, please contact Autumn Shepherd, Community Engagement Coordinator, at 636-757-9334.
