The Ark’s Back-To-School Collection Drive

The start of the school year brings exciting new experiences, friendships, and learning, but it can also bring new challenges and stressors for both children and parents. At The Ark, we aim to help make this transition as smooth as possible for our clients with children ages 3-18, but we can’t do that without your help.

The Ark’s Back-to-School Drive is vital to help students in Pre-K through Grade 12 head into the new school year with the supplies they need—and a strong foundation for the year ahead. 

We hope you will extend your generosity to support this program and help provide over 700 students with essential school supplies, including the choice and flexibility of a Walmart gift card, so they have what they need most to feel confident and prepared for a successful school year.

How can you help?

  • Support with a donation online or by check to help The Ark distribute school supplies to families.
  • You can also mail your checks to The Ark Northwest: 3100 Dundee Rd., Suite 802, Northbrook, IL 60062.

With any questions or to learn more about ways to give to The Ark, contact Dani Greenwald, Development Manager, at dgreenwald@arkchicago.org or 773-973-0335.
