Back-to-School 2020 Instructions (English)

August 7-8, 2020!

Due to COVID-19 concerns, we are changing our Back-to-School 2020 Distribution.  To ensure the safety of your family and our volunteers, we will use a “touchless” process that will require pre-ordering your child’s clothing and “curb-side pick-up.”  To participate in the distribution, please follow the instructions below:

Step 1.  Fill out the “CDBG Income Certification Form” COMPLETELY.  (English or Spanish)

  1. Please certify your household income per year.
  2. Mark the race of your children with a number “1”, “2”, “3”, etc.
  3. List only the names of the children in your household (ages 3-9) being served.
  4. Sign the form.

Step 2.  Fill out the “U R SPECIAL – Pre-Order Sheet(s).”  (English or Spanish)

  1. List your cell phone number.  This is required to track your order, match your appointment, and so we can call you if we have any questions about your forms.
  2. Fill out the bottom sections.  Use one section for each qualifying child (ages 3 – 9).
  3. If you have more than 3 children, continue on the Spanish pre-order sheet provided.

Step 3.  Return the CDBG Form and Pre-Order Sheets to U R Special before August 1.  Please:

  • Mail them by July 30 using the enclosed self-addressed stamped envelope.
  • Or, take a picture of each of the sheets and text them to (405) 371-0396 or email us at contact@urspecialedmond.org.
  • Or, drop the sheets off in the drop box at the U R Special building which is located at
    25 W. 3rd Street, Edmond.

Step 4.  Reserve a pick-up time at U R SPECIAL (25 W. 3rd Street) on August 7 or 8.  Please:

  • Visit the “Signup Genius” link online where you can reserve a time. Please contact us for the link.

You do not need an account to sign up.  Sign up for only one appointment per car, regardless of how many children you are bringing.  List your cell phone number.

  • Or, email us at contact@urspecialedmond.org or text (405) 371-0396.  Give us a few best times for your family and we will make the appointment for you and confirm the date and time. 

Appointments are first-come, first-served, so book early for best choices.

Step 5.  Bring your eligible children to U R Special on August 7 or 8 during your reserved time.

  1. Park in a parking spot marked “U R Special Pick Up”.  (East side of the building)
  2. Stay in the car and call the number printed on the sign. 
  3. We will bring your clothing items to your car using social distancing and protective gear. 

Thank you for your patience as we try to re-invent our distribution process.  Check our facebook page and website frequently.  Any last minute changes will be posted there.  If you have questions or concerns, you can email us at contact@urspecialedmond.org.
