Help abused and neglected children in Dallas County go back to school prepared, and ready to learn!

Back-to-School Drive

A special thank you to our 2019 Glue Stick Sponsors Centennial, Origin Bank and Quilling, Selander, Lownds, Winslett & Moser!

Remember the joy of getting a new set of school supplies?

At Community Partners of Dallas, our kids are not approaching the start of school with the same excitement and support. Many will go back to school wishing for a new backpack or new uniforms.

This year we will provide backpacks filled with age appropriate school supplies and new uniforms to more than 3,800 abused and neglected children.

You can make a difference.

Supplies we need the most:

  • backpacks
  • pencil pouches
  • construction paper (9×12 100 sheets or less)
  • manila paper (9×12 100 sheets or less)
  • 1” binders
  • calculators
  • markers (10-count)
  • colored pencils (12-count)
  • watercolor paint set
  • 8-tab dividers
  • rulers
  • safety scissors
  • composition books
  • pencil sharpeners

Organize a School Supply Drive

Office or department drives are a great way to get your co-workers involved, or hold a drive with any group of friends…your book club, professional association, Sunday School class, soccer team or scout troop…just to name a few!


Donations may be delivered to CPD’s new facility or you can make a monetary donation, and we’ll happily do the shopping for you. Because of our bulk purchasing, every $1 donated is equal to $6 worth of school supplies and uniforms!

We ask that all supplies and donations be delivered to our new facility by August 30, 2019.

Our friends at KidBiz are accepting Back-to-School donations for CPD at their Inwood Village location (5370 W. Lovers Lane, #314 Dallas, Texas 75209) now through the end of August!

Corporate groups are reminded to bring their donations to our new facility (7950 Elmbrook Drive, Dallas, Texas 75247). Please contact with any questions.
