Ladera Community Church and LifeMoves (previously InnVision Shelter Network) have shared a long, 20+ year relationship. The School Supply Drive helps support over 300 families who use their services. We believe in leveling the playing field, so all children can start the school year prepared. The local community is invited to share in this belief by filling the barrels we provide at Church.

We are grateful to once again to organize a school supply drive for the children and families of LifeMoves. Help us provide low-income and foster children in grades K-12 the tools they need to succeed, feeling prepared and ready to learn. Your generous support shows our community’s most vulnerable children that their education matters!

This year’s drive will be a bit different from previous years.

Please help students experiencing homelessness start the year off right!  This year, Life Moves is asking for either the donation of FULL backpacks for high school students OR funding for backpacks. Your donations will prepare students who are staying at Life Moves sites for the upcoming school year.

Two Ways to Donate…


    A backpack full of school supplies costs Life Moves $65. If you would like to donate funds for a backpack, please send donations of any amount to Ladera Community Church. If you would rather provide a full backpack, the requested supplies for each full backpack donation are below.

  • Donate a Full Backpack

    Backpacks can be dropped off at the church office in the blue barrels. Checks should be made out to Ladera Community Church with “School Supplies” in the memo line (please send to 3300 Alpine Rd, Portola Valley CA 94028.)

Please have all donations of backpacks or funds delivered to the church by 8/23.
