Help Departing Youth Transition Back into Society

Backpacks & School Supplies Many youth do not have the support of a family or their family cannot afford the necessary supplies when returning to their home schools.  This adds to their anxiety & insecurities.  While shopping for back-to-school for your kids, please consider supporting a youth leaving Echo Glen.  More details here.

Hygiene Kits – Travel size deodorant, toothpaste, hair brush, hair pick, body wash, travel bag, shampoo/conditioner; also tampons & pads.

Collect for Youth’s Activities and Birthdays

  • ARTS & CRAFTS SUPPLIES – Between our art projects during and after school, sewing classes, and our Community Service Socials, we can put just about anything you have to good use.
  • BOOKS for book clubs, resident’s cottage (living quarters) & library resource room.  Reading levels requested – about 6th grade to young adult.
  • BIRTHDAY BAGS – Many youth haven’t ever been honored on their special day.  Encourage a youth by helping them celebrate.  Details here
  • CLOTHING for the Donation Station – Youth without parental support often arrive without appropriate clothing.  Learn about the needs here.
  • GAMES – Youth will get to practice good sportsmanship, social and communication skills.  All will be appreciated except physical contact games such as Twister.
  • PUZZLES – for the puzzle club.  Youth work together to complete puzzles then their ‘teamwork masterpieces’ are glued down and displayed all over campus.
  • SCHOOL WISH LISTS – Purchase items that help teachers & staff to support the youth:
    • SCHOOL supplies for the youth
    • BOOKS for the school library
  • BIRTHDAY CAKE & CARDS – Provide a cake and card once a month or once a year for a child who would not otherwise receive one.
  • FUND RAISE – have your group raise funds to support the events and programs that support the youth.

Donated items can be dropped off to Echo Glen administration anytime.  Please label “Room 8
