Support for Students
Dearborn Academy students come from a wide range of backgrounds and family circumstances. If a student needs to escape from a dysfunctional or abusive home, if a family member falls ill or loses a job, if a divorce or custody battle paralyzes family finances, it becomes a challenge for even a resourceful teen just to get by.
As much as we can, we try to help students during those times when they may have little or no family support by making sure they have some necessary items. This may mean giving them a warm winter coat, a nice shirt for a job interview, a gift card so that they can buy a present for an estranged parent, or even school or personal supplies. A small gift can mean a big boost in self esteem. If you would like to donate to our student support program, or if your organization would like to collect donations for our support program, we would be grateful. You’d be making a student’s life a little easier!
Holiday Clothing Exchange
We accept clothing in new or items in excellent used condition. Winter coats and clothing, shoes and business attire are especially needed! Our collecting process begins in early November each year.
Student Supply Closet
Basics from school supplies to personal items make a big difference in times of need. Thank you!
Your unwanted gift cards are always welcome here!
Tickets to Cultural And Sports Events
Your unused play, concert or IMAX tickets could open a new world to a Dearborn student. The same holds true for tickets to see our local professional and collegiate teams play. Please consider donating extra or unwanted tickets to the school.
In-kind gifts may provide donors with significant tax benefits. Please consult with your tax professional for more details.
