Help a child start school healthy and ready to learn!

Join us in our annual backpack drive as we partner with the Valleywise Health Family Resource Centers to provide backpacks and school supplies to students in Maricopa County’s most vulnerable communities.

Now through July 1st, Desert Ford Dealers will match your donation, dollar-for-dollar, up to $10,000!

That means for every $30 pre-filled backpack you donate, Desert Ford Dealers will donate one, too! It’s a win-win!

“When you have kids, everything helps. Having a center provide a backpack not only sets my kids up for success but also helps out my family financially. Every bit counts and everything donated is appreciated.”

– Jocelyn, Martha and George Otero

“We are really grateful for having the Family Resource Center for the kids. It’s super convenient and has everything that the child needs. It’s really helpful that we get a backpack. We really appreciate it and are really grateful for it!”

– Lilly Zamora
Family Resource Center Family
