July 2018 Give: Back to School Bash

Homeless children often struggle to be successful in school. In addition to the stress of not having a secured place to live, they often lack basic school supplies.

We partnered with The Family Shelter, an emergency housing facility for children and their families, to help them kick-off the new school year!

We were able to donate the following school supplies:

  • 100 drawstring backpacks
  • 20 backpacks
  • 24 packs of crayons
  • 24 packs of colored pencils
  • 24 packs of highlighters
  • 24 packs of erasers
  • 24 packs of #2 pencils
  • 24 packs of pens
  • 24 reams of ruled paper
  • 24 packs ruled index cards
  • 24 packs of post-it pads
  • 24 packs of glue sticks
  • 24 Pencil sharpeners
  • 80 snack-size bags of chips
  • 80 cupcakes and/or cookies
  • 160 bottles of water
  • 75 gently loved books
  • 20 gently loved stuffed animals
  • 10 games

In addition to collecting school supplies to stock their homework station, we hosted a BACK TO SCHOOL BASH with face painting, corn hole, a ball toss and other games for all to enjoy.
