  • This event has passed.

To start the school year off right, Families Helping Families of Iowa provides around 400 new, fully-stocked backpacks filled with school supplies for children in foster care, approved placement or who have been adopted from foster care.

Kids also receive a $50 shoe voucher and a free haircut.


Day of Event

The bags will be prepacked and labeled with your/your child’s name so please plan to arrive anytime between 12 p.m. and 7 p.m. The Clothing Closet will be open the entire day as well (12 p.m. to 7 p.m.) for any of your back-to-school shopping needs!

If you’re unable to register or miss the registration deadline (below), school supplies will still be available after August 10. However, due to needs of the Rally, a fully stocked backpack cannot be guaranteed.

Join the Backpack Waiting List

If you missed the cutoff for registration (Aug. 4) before it closed, please call our office today at 319-294-9706 to be placed on our backpack waiting list.
