Teen Back to School Drive

Emily's Care Closet is preparing for our 3rd annual back-to-school clothing drive. backpacks, and school supply drive for teens ages 13-18. This event helps teens in middle school and high school start the year off right with new clothes, backpacks, personal care items, and school supplies. In 2023, we helped over 125 teens and their families from over 5 counties prepare for back to school. Every year, we continue to have teens on a waiting list and we would like to serve even more. 

Our registration is currently full. Please email to be added to the wait list. 

How you can support

Remember when you were a teen and one of the best parts about going back to school was getting a new backpack or a new outfit to start the school year off right? Great start to the year, right? With the cost of new clothes and backpacks, some families just cannot afford it. This is why Emily's Care Closet hosts this teen back to school drive. It's hard going to middle and high school and teens just want to fit in with their peers. 

Will you please help us send teens back to school feeling good about starting the new school year?
