What an incredible year 2022 was! It was our 55th year in service and it was the year we were finally able to get back to in-person distributions! Seeing students face-to-face after two years of contingency plans was lifegiving for all of us! We serviced more than 4,700 children at distribution events this year and our programs helped approximately 15,000 more across Arizona. For that we are extremely grateful.

We’re also grateful for the corporate partners who continue to display their trust in us by financially supporting Back to School Clothing Drive. We had an amazing number of sponsors and players at our golf tournament; we were selected as one of the five grantees for the Devin Booker Starting Five; and, we were able to partner with Maricopa County and the CDC on some important child health initiatives. If you would like to learn more about corporate giving, please email me.

Speaking of partners, I can’t tell you how much it means to us when individual donors choose to partner with Back to School Clothing Drive. We know there are many important causes and we’re honored to be deemed worthy of your personal gifts. We do everything we possibly can to live up to your trust.  If you haven’t made your tax credit donation yet, remember that you can donate through April 15 and still claim it on your 2022 tax returns!

Thank you to everyone who supported, encouraged, and volunteered for Back to School Clothing Drive this year. It is an honor and a privilege to work with you and to serve Arizona’s Title I students and their families.
