Seasonal Drives

As the seasons change, so do our residents’ needs.  You and your family, friends, neighbors, or co-workers can provide direct support to APAH families by contributing to our seasonal drives.

SUMMER — Ready to Learn 

As students and families enjoy summer break, APAH is collecting donations for our Ready to Learn Drive. Purchasing school supplies in preparation for the following school year is a major financial burden for low-income families. The Ready to Learn program eases this burden by making back-to-school preparation a breeze.

YOU can help ensure it is a successful year for the more than 1,500 students living in APAH properties. APAH’s Ready to Learn Back to School Drive needs your support to provide the new school supplies that our school-aged residents need to succeed. APAH families will be able to “shop” for needed school supplies thanks to your generous in-kind or monetary donations. Please consider gathering new supplies with colleagues, friends, or family to help out local families in need!

FALL — Coat and Cold Weather Accessories Drive

Give the gift of warmth! Help support those in need by donating new or gently used coats to APAH children and youth. Groups and individuals are asked to donate winter coats for children of all ages and sizes.

We are accepting the following:

  • Fleece Jacket

  • Ski Jacket
  • Bomber Jacket
  • Peacoat
  • Parka
  • 3-in-1
  • Puffer Coat
  • Duffle Coat
  • plus any others that aren’t listed!

WINTER — Holiday Gift Fund

To celebrate the magic of the holiday season, consider helping our residents shop for gifts and much-needed winter items by donating to support our Holiday Gift Fund.
