School Supply Drive

Many students head back to school every year without the tools they need to be successful, and we want to help! Right now we’re collecting new backpacks and school supplies at the John Young campus for children who attend nearby schools. You can help by purchasing a new backpack and other school supplies using the suggested list below (pick one or more items if you’re able)!


Supply List:

  • New backpack
  • No. 2 pencils
  • Large pencils (for Kindergarten students)
  • Single subject spiral notebooks
  • 3-prong folders with pockets
  • Notebook paper
  • Colored markers
  • Colored pencils
  • Thin Dry-Erase Markers
  • Small Dry Erase Boards
  • Glue sticks

You can drop off new backpacks and supplies at the John Young campus any time! Collection bins are located outside of Welcome Center B and Faith Hall (Bruton side).  Please call Security at (407) 514-4434 if you need assistance while you’re on campus. Supplies can also be dropped off at any Sunday Night Live events at our Horizon West Campus. Let’s provide new backpacks and supplies to as many children as possible this school year and show our city we are #FOROrlando and #FORHorizonWest!

School supplies will be provided to Rock Lake Elementary, Legends Academy, Frontline Outreach, Pineloch Elementary – and more!
