This fall, 20,000 foster children will head back to school in the Northwest. In an effort to help Washington and Oregon foster kids feel prepared and confident this school year and help foster families tackle their back-to-school shopping list, Sleep Country USA is hosting its annual School Supply Drive for Foster Kids.
The drive runs from July 18 to Sept. 5.
Donate a backpack and fill it with school supplies or host your own drive collecting classroom essential items like pencils, paper, binders, calculators, glue sticks and more. Please add this event to an upcoming community or fundraising calendar and help spread the word about this drive.
Donations of new school supplies can be made at any Sleep Country store.
For more information on the location of the nearest store, please visit the Sleep Country store locator at www.sleepcountry.com or call 1-888-88-SLEEP.
The store hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Donations will be distributed among Sleep Country’s partner foster care organizations.
