Ready, Set, School! is an annual drive hosted by Integrated Family Community Services (IFCS) to collect new backpacks, grade-appropriate school supplies, and grocery boxes of nutritious items to start the school year off strong.

We are in need of Student Sponsors and Food Support Donors to make our 2022 Program a Success for 300+ income qualified Kindergarten through 8th grade children in metro Denver, Colorado.

Be a Student Sponsor

Student Sponsors select from grade and gender categories to provide the needed items for participating students. IFCS partners with Roonga, which provides a way to purchase bulk supplies through a wholesale vendor at a fraction of the cost.

Be a Food and Program Support Donor

In addition to backpacks and school supplies for 300+ child(ren), the Ready, Set, School! program provides food support for the participants’ families. Grocery boxes will contain shelf-stable and frozen food items as well as fresh produce, enough food for meals to feed the entire family for one week.
Thank you for feeding young stomachs and minds!


If you have any questions about this drive or the work we do at IFCS, please contact Tylar Featherstone, Development Coordinator.
