As our children are enjoying the lazy days of summer, we are looking ahead and planning for the time when they will return to school. Most children are excited about wearing their new clothes, unpacking new school supplies, and carrying a new back pack down the hallway to their new classrooms. Unfortunately, there are many kids that come through the center that will not have new clothes or even the proper school supplies.
The children that come through our doors have had their lives interrupted in devastating ways. Each day we work to help them regain their childhoods. As school approaches, we know one way we can help them is to ensure that they do return to school with at least a new backpack, proper school supplies and a new pair of shoes. You cannot imagine how happy it makes these children to have those simple things provided for them.
Our Family Advocate is hard at work trying to get sponsors lined up to help us meet the needs of the children that we currently have in services. If you can donate in any way, it would be greatly appreciated. Our Family Advocate can provide school supply lists, shoes sizes, and the number of back packs that we need. You can simply buy supplies and bring them to the center and we will get them sorted out, you can adopt and shop for one child, or you can donate cash or small gift cards. No donation is too small, and every donation is gratefully accepted!!
Thank you in advance for thinking of our children and standing alongside us as we strive to get their school year started off in a positive way!!
