We recently held our annual school supply drive, but unfortunately fell short of our goal of providing 150 back packs to children in our various programs, ranging from elementary to high school. We urgently need your help to raise $1,523.50!

Imagine a child – your child – worrying about going back to school, not because they are nervous about grades or making friends, but because they don’t have the right (or any) school supplies.

Now, imagine you could help alleviate this worry for even just one child. Think about how happy you could make his or her first day of school. Getting off the school bus with a full back pack of brand new school supplies, ready to start learning. Imagine helping a child start off on the first day of school eager and ready to learn!

Family & Children’s Agency is raising money to purchase supplies to fill 25 back packs for 25 local, under-served children to use during the school day and at home, while doing homework.

Some of the items that each child will receive are:
• Back Pack ($13.99 at cost)
• Pencils and Pens ($7.99)
• Crayons, Markers and Colored Pencils ($8.99)
• Binders and Paper ($12.99)
• Composition Notebook ($2.99)
• Folders ($10)
• Glue Sticks ($3.99)

Total per child: $60.94
Number needed: 25

Cost to provide 25 urgently-needed backpacks to local school children: $1,523.50
