Our 2016 Back-to-School Project ended on a high note last week when our children and teen clients and their caregivers stopped by our Waugh building to load up on school supplies! What a reward it was to see the clients walk away with brand new backpacks and other essentials needed to get the school year off to a great start.
Every year, the Back-to-School Project is made possible thanks to our supporters who collect loads of supplies and backpacks, our wonderful volunteers who spend countless hours sorting and packing the supplies, and our dedicated Back-to-School committee and staff who help coordinate the project! Because of their support, more than 1,000 children and teens will head back to school this fall with appropriate supplies, just like all the other kids!
