School SuppliesThe next year is closer than you think
Ready For SchoolA Helping Hands Committee partnership
The Helping Hands Committee will once again be partnering with our local Cradles to Crayons organization for their “Ready For School” initiative. We will have a booth/stand at the One Big Family Picnic on 5/17 but you can donate/help now.
The Ready for School initiative runs from June through September and provides thousands of children with vital back-to-school items. Items include a backpack full of school supplies, properly-fitting clothing, books, shoes, and other critical items. Their goal this year is to pack and distribute at least 50,000 backpacks, as well as 4,000 Uniform Packs and thousands of KidPacks including everyday shoes, books, clothing, and other basic essentials.
For the cost of just $10, you can provide a backpack filled with all the school supplies necessary for a child in need. Sponsor one child or sponsor ten, the sky’s the limit. For every backpack sponsored, The Up Foundation will match the donation, dollar for dollar. The Up Foundation is a local family run Foundation with the mission to help children in need.
Please join us in our effort to help a child start their school year off right and to give a hand to the less fortunate.
Thank you for your support,
