Back To School

Helping children served by LCCS to start the school year off right!

Each summer, Friends of Lucas County Children Services organizes the “Ready, Set, School!” campaign to collect backpacks and school supplies to equip children in grades K through 12 that are being served by LCCS.

With the challenges our children face, it’s important for them to have a positive back-to-school experience, and starting the first day of school with a new backpack filled with the right tools is an important first step. As a community partner, we welcome support to help us provide the pens, pencils, notebooks and supplies children need to start the school year off right. There are three ways you can help:

  • Making a tax-deductible donation to Friends of LCCS to put toward the purchase of school supplies;
  • Donating school supplies, such as notebooks, backpacks, etc.;
  • Organizing a public or employee collection of school supplies through your organization/business.

For more information, contact the LCCS Public Information Department
