The 2021 Back2School Drive:
Prepare Students to Chase Their Dreams Today!
Many families are still reeling from the COVID-19 pandemic. Money is tight and for a family struggling to even pay their bills, school supplies are a luxury.
A backpack full of new supplies can give a child the confidence they need to start the school year right AND help ease the financial burden for the family whether learning takes place at the kitchen table or the classroom this fall.
YOU can equip a student with the tools they need to start the school year strong and prepared to chase their dreams.
MAKE A DONATION
Your donation will have the biggest impact. Please consider donating before August 13, 2021.
