Back to School

William G. Lockwood Memorial Fund Back-to-School Supply Drive

Child Guidance Center sponsors an Annual William G. Lockwood Memorial Fund Back-to-School Supply Drive which we give children a bag filled with the necessary items for going back to school. Many of the children that come to us for help do not have the means to obtain school supplies on their own.  Too often this results in the child as having difficulties in school due to embarrassment, low self-esteem, and lack of motivation to excel. The provision of these supplies assists in increasing attendance, academic performance and motivation through promotion of self esteem.

Your monetary or gift-in-kind donations are greatly appreciated. It is only through the generosity of support from community partners like you that Child Guidance Center can continue to provide services for children and adolescents.

Items needed include: glue sticks, pencils, colored pencils, markers, watercolor paint, crayons, wide ruled loose paper, rulers, pocket folders, theme books, three-ring binders, and pens.  Items with business logos on them are welcome.

Donations can be mailed to:
