PHOENIX - Sometimes the difference between a successful student and a failing student is having the basic essentials to do homework and participate in the classroom.
For this reason, CPLC hosts an annual Back-to-School Drive to help get children ready to start the school year.
This year’s drive will take place from June 1 to August 1. Donations such as backpacks, notebooks, uniforms, pencils, crayons, paper, and other essentials are needed and welcomed.
All donated items will benefit the more than 500 youth that attend CPLC’s community centers, health centers, and learning centers (CPLC Centro de Familia, CPLC De Colores Domestic Violence Shelter, Emerald Shores Learning Center, and San Marina Learning Center, to name a few) in the Phoenix metropolitan area.
Donations can be dropped off at CPLC’s main office at 1112 E. Buckeye Road in Phoenix. Please contact Priscilla Valencia at Events@CPLC.org or 602-257-0700 with questions.
