Our annual Back-to-School Project was months in the making and, on August 14 and 15, our youngest clients were finallly able to "shop" for their brand new school supplies and backpacks!
Over the two-day period, children, teens and their caregivers stopped by our Waugh building to load up on the essentials needed to get the school year off to a great start. What a reward it was to see the smiles and excitement on their faces!
In addition to backpacks and school supplies, we were very grateful to distribute toothbrushes and new undies from local organization Undies For Everyone, who donated 2,000 pairs of children's undies to our project!
This week, we're still helping to meet the needs of families with children heading back to school. When all is said and done, we will have served nearly 1,000 children in our community.
This annual initiative helps us send our youngest clients back to school with new backpacks and supplies, just like all the other kids. We are so appreciative for the community's continued kindness and support.
