BENEFITING: Sheltering Arms Children & Family Services
EVENT DATE: Aug 01, 2016
The children in our programs have bright futures ahead of them. Despite the odds stacked against them, they are eager to learn and capable of incredible things. It is our job to provide them with the right tools to succeed, and you can help! We're gearing up to send more than 3,500 kids back to school: youth in foster care heading to college, graduating preschoolers heading to kindergarten, and everything in between. We provide them with school supplies, backpacks, college dorm starter kits, and more. For children living below the poverty line, having the tools to learn and measure up to their peers at school can make a huge difference in their self-confidence and their educational outcomes. As you pick out school supplies for your family this summer, consider helping a child in need too!
