Our annual Back to School Rally provides students and their parents access to tools, information and resources they need to have a successful academic year. Mattie Rhodes Center works with our area’s most vulnerable families to create a vibrant community where families are healthy, safe and have the resources to thrive.

This year’s event will provide families with school supplies, uniforms, health screenings, free immunizations, free books and great information on a variety of community resources.

School supplies will be accepted now through August 12. Donations can be dropped off at any Mattie Rhodes Center location: 148 N. Topping Ave., 1701 Jarboe St., and 915 W. 17th St.

Don’t have time to shop for supplies? You can sponsor a student in need! Your contribution of $30 will pay for a uniform top, pants or skirt, socks and a bag of supplies.
