Who are the supplies given to?
WCPF distributes supplies to schools, and families throughout the state of Illinois.
How do we collect these supplies?
Businesses and Individual persons host School Drives for WCPF. You can host it at your work, summer school, on your own as a personal charity, your place of worship, ANYWHERE! After the drive is over WCPF collects the supplies and brings them to our warehouse in Wood Dale to be sorted and stuffed into backpacks. This helps us give them away in an orderly fashion, as there is one filled backpack per child.
How do you get involved?
Coordinate A Back-to-School Supply Drive! Simply complete the registration form and return to us by fax to 630.552.7618 or mail to WCPF, 1905 Marketview Drive #234, Yorkville, IL 60560. We can then provide you with the appropriate supplies to assist you in making your school drive a success!
Monetary donations are welcomed! Sometimes people’s schedules don’t allow them time to run out to purchase supplies but would like to donate to the School Drive. All check donations are to be written out to WCPF and mailed to us at the address above. Credit card donations can be made directly on-line at www.Payton34.com.
