Elkhart Community Schools is grateful to be part of a generous community that is supportive of the district in many ways. We're often asked by people and businesses how they can support our students, teachers, and programs through donations. Sometimes community members have an item that may be useful to our students' learning process, and sometimes community members use their own social circles to coordinate group donations of items. Wherever your heart lies, there are many ways to support Elkhart Community Schools' students, staff, and programs!
If you are seeking a way to give back, the following are some of the more common ways that people help ECS students, teachers, and programs through donations.
