BENEFITING: CHILDRENS LAW CENTER OF LOS ANGELES
Children’s Law Center of California (“CLC”) will hold a Backpack Drive throughout the months of July and August 2014, collecting new backpacks and school supplies such as pens, pencils, crayons and notebooks.
FOSTER YOUTH NEED YOUR HELP…
In Los Angeles and Sacramento Counties, more than 33,000 abused and neglected children in foster care move from one placement to another an average of four times. Many of these children do not have any bags to carry their textbooks to and from school, and are forced to carry their belongings in tattered plastic bags. The message these children received is loud and clear: they are considered society’s throw-aways.
Let’s work together to change this message. Here’s your chance to help out!
This July and August, please drop off new, unused backpacks and school supplies to our CLC offices:
201 Centre Plaza Dr., Suite 10, Monterey Park, CA 91754
1040 W. Avenue J., Suite 1119 or Suite 1130, Lancaster, CA 93534
8950 Cal Center Dr., Suite 301, Sacramento, CA 95826
*we will also accept shipped donations.
Monetary donations for assistance in the purchase of school uniforms is also welcome and appreciated.
Children’s Law Center of California is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization. For more information about the Children’s Law Center of California or to donate online, please visit www.clccal.org.
