You probably looked forward to your first day of school. New sneakers and jeans, just the right lunch box and best of all a brand new backpack filled with everything you could imagine... a rainbow of crayons, yellow wooden pencils, shiny notebooks and crisp new paper. To a child, a backpack and school supplies are wonderful symbols of inspiration and possibilities. It's a package that builds confidence and sets the tone for that first day of school.
But imagine your first day of school without these extras. Sadly, there a kids throughout Florida who depend on loving caretakers, not family members to cover the costs of their needs. Extras like backpacks and school supplies fall to the bottom of that list when money runs short.
Devereux Florida seeks your help in providing school supplies to our children in need.
