EVENT DATE: Jul 30, 2015
New Backpack. New Clothes. New Attitude. New Day!
Be a GAME CHANGER! Help our HANDY kids reach their fullest potential!
No feeling is better than being prepared and confident. For adults, it would be like landing the job you've been working for, with the corner office decked out with Apple products. Going to work the next day would be AWESOME!
For kids, teens and college students who have been underperforming in class due to lack of resources and supplies, or for those who have been missing school because of low self esteem and their personal appearances, a backpack full of supplies and a new outfit they are proud is a GAME CHANGER!!
As members of #NextGen4HANDY YOU can change that picture for more than 500 of HANDY’s middle, high school and college students and supply them with a new attitude that will lead them to the proverbial corner office.
Your donation will help HANDY provide the following for our children heading back to school:
$25 provides a backpack filled with essential first-day-of-school supplies.
$50 ensures a month of healthy meals for a HANDY student.
$100 supports after school tutoring and enrichment for students in need.
$150 buys a back to school shopping spree.
$250 provides a College Starter Kit for a high school graduate.
HANDY’s mission is to embrace, educate, and empower vulnerable youth to become engaged, productive adults.
