Donated towards $750.00 Goal
October 19, 2018
Remember the (usually) great experience of getting ready to go back to school? New pencils, eraser, notebooks and colorful files, maybe a new calculator, all in a brand-new backpack? Maybe you’ve experienced the same back to school shopping fun with your kids?
Now, imagine that your children didn’t have the experience of getting excited for going back to school with new supplies and a new backpack to motivate them?
Clothes to Kids of Fairfield County (CTKF) wants to help all children experience the excitement of going back to school so we’re launching our first online fundraiser to help us purchase backpacks for the children who come to shop, for free, in our store!
(Newcomers to CTKF’s fundraising efforts, please visit our website (clothestokidsfairfieldcounty.org) to learn more about this terrific non-profit store where kids get a wardrobe twice a year, for free.)
CTKF decided that it would be beneficial for kids attending school to have sturdy, new backpacks and, typically, kids replace their backpacks at the beginning of the school year when they also get their school supplies. CTKF would like kids who shop for free to be able to start off the school year off right and enjoy the same back to school experience as others in Fairfield County!
Unfortunately, some children’s parents can’t provide a similar experience so we’re raising funds to buy them backpacks! Each backpack costs about $16 and we plan to purchase at least 46 backpacks. Please help us raise the funds needed to purchase these new backpacks and put a smile on the faces of kids less fortunate.
Cost to purchase backpacks for about 93 K-12 students in Fairfield County: $750
