Back-to-School Basket of Miracles


MONDAY, JULY 13, 2020 – MONDAY, JULY 20, 2020
Help Miracles for Kids safely assemble and deliver backpacks filled with healthy snacks, school supplies and seasonal gifts to ease the financial burden and spread joy as kids prepare to return to school.

The packages will help stretch the already scarce budgets of families facing the combined impact of their child’s life-threatening illness, a devastated economy, and the effects of COVID-19 on their child’s already compromised immune system.


Rally your colleagues, classmates, friends and family to help collect school supplies for kids in grades K-12. All items collected should be delivered to the Miracles for Kids office (17848 Sky Park Circle, Suite C, Irvine, CA 92614) by 4:00pm on Thursday, July 9, 2020.

Contact Kevin Huerta, Community Programs Coordinator, at to learn about our greatest needs and arrange for collection boxes. (Download the Flier)


We can purchase much needed school supplies at a reduced price but need your help to make this happen! To become a sponsor, contact Jonathan Birt, Development Manager, at or call (714) 705-4541. (Download the Flier)


You can make a big difference from home! Help raise funds in support of items most needed by hosting an online fundraiser through your Facebook page or by creating a peer-to-peer fundraiser HERE.

100% of all the funds you help raise will go directly toward critically-ill kids and their families in need.



All volunteer spots have been allocated. For more information on future volunteer opportunities, please contact Terri Benedict, Volunteer Engagement & Operations Manager, at or call (714) 705-4536.
