BENEFITING: LEND A HAND FOUNDATION INC OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

EVENT DATE: Aug 27, 2011

THE STORY:

The Lend A Hand Foundation has been in existence for 14 years.  Its first mission was to provide 100 youth residing in a homeless shelter with clothing and other support.  At the site, a Teen Talk Program, Annual Holiday Celebration and Annual Back to School Giveaway (BTS) was developed.  The BTS began in 2001 with 200 backpacks and last year at our 10th year anniversary, with the help of wonderful supporters, we provided 10,000 youth with a backpack and other supplies.  This year it is our goal to support 6,000 less fortunate youth with school supplies so they can start the new school year equipped.  However, because of the economy, we are not sure if we will be able to reach the 6,000 goal but we are working hard to raise the funds necessary to reach as many youth as we possibly can.  We have also launced our Stay In School Program (SIS) which will empower youth to stay in school via incentives based on increasing their grades, participation, and attendance.  All of which will help to build self confidence and motivate them to achieve their goals in life.
