Back to school program
Help our young people have a successful school year.
We identify school aged children in need and provide them with a backpack, school supplies, and a gift card for school clothes.
If you would like to participate in this program by purchasing backpacks, supplies and/or gift cards, please fill out the form below and send it back by e-mail or fax by July 27. We hope to have all the donations collected by August 10.
No child should have to be without the tools they need for success in school and thanks to your generous donation, more children will have those supplies.

Are you getting too many mailers?
Mailers can be frustrating, especially if they come too frequently. If you receive too many mailers from us and would like to change that, you may visit JoinFriendsOfTheArmy.org and enter code NNE.
Friends of The Army puts you in charge of your giving. Sign up to donate what you want, when you want. The choice is yours! Your gifts will be conveniently and automatically charged to your credit card at the frequency you choose, which reduces our costs and allows us to use your donations to help more struggling people.
Thank you for helping our hurting neighbors. With each gift, you’ll know that a struggling family found food, safe shelter, or even a chance to get back on their feet because of your kindness.
