School is back in session! Thanks to generous donors, kids in the Emergency Children’s Shelter, Family Resources, Early Education Services, and Foster Care programs are starting the school year with new backpacks full of school supplies and new school clothes and uniforms. Over the last three months, companies, social groups, and individuals have gone the extra mile to help our kids and families.
Supporters donated hundreds of backpacks and mountains of school supplies ranging from markers and crayons to binders and notebooks. In addition, several donated clothing and school uniforms, as well as funds and gift cards, to make sure that the children start their first day of school with confidence and are ready to learn.
We want to thank the following organizations and individuals for contributing to our Back to School campaign:
