New supplies needed include: 

  • Washable Markers (eight-count packages)
  • Crayons (24 count)
  • Small Scissors
  • Backpacks (no wheels)
  • Pencil Boxes
  • Notebook Paper
  • Composition Books
  • Headphones
  • Glue Sticks

A full list of school supplies can be found at CityofIrving.org/Supplies. Organizers say backpacks are the most requested item, but students need an array of supplies from folders to colored pencils.

Donations can be dropped off at any Irving fire station. Visit CityofIrving.org/Fire to find a station.

Financial donations also are accepted. Checks can be made payable to Irving Schools Foundation and mailed to the foundation at P.O. Box 152637, Irving, TX 75015. Donations can also be made online at IrvingSchoolsFoundation.org/Donation.

Families in need of supplies should contact their school directly. For more information about Supplies for Success, call (972) 721-4909.
