School Supply Drive

Since 1997, the Children’s Center has been providing free school supplies to needy children in Fannin County.  Thanks to many generous donors, children from all over the county can get the supplies they need to start school.

Each August, in-kind donations of actual school supplies are needed in order to continue this important project.  We also accept cash so you can leave the shopping to us! (Plus, we will buy the supplies tax free and make your donation stretch even farther!) The Fannin County Children’s Center is a 501(c)3 organization which means all contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.  Donate Now!
