Each summer Reach Out Lakota solicits, collects, and distributes thousands of school supplies for local students in need. Our program is tailored so that every student receives the specific items that have been requested by the school each student will be attending in the fall. With customized bags of supplies we are able to best serve our student's needs and maximize our donor's impact.
Donating School Supplies
Supply lists and donation needs information becomes available starting in June. Collections are held throughout our community at various churches, business, and households during July. Items are delivered to us in late July or early August to be sorted into bags for the students and then distributed in mid August.
Donating Financial Support
Financial support made to the Back to School Program help us to make tax-free bulk orders of items used by a majority of students. This also empowers us to purchase items that meet the exact needs of our students as requested by the schools.
Use the Donate Online button to donate using a credit card.
