Back to School Drive
August 10, 2016
Too often, the lack of adequate supplies results in children having difficulties in school due to embarrassment, low self-esteem, and lack of motivation to excel. This project solely depends on the generosity of the community in which these children live. Please consider partnering with us in preparation for this years’ school supply drive. Child Guidance Center is proud of our creative solutions of promoting success in the young lives we serve.
In-kind donations and items with business logos are greatly appreciated. Glue sticks, crayons, colored pencils, markers, watercolor paint, rulers, wide and college ruled loose leaf paper, spiral notebooks, pocket folders, three-ring binders, blue/black/red pens and backpacks are needed.
If you prefer to make a monetary donation, here is what your money would buy:
$10 = School supplies for 3 Elementary or Middle School Students
$15 = Backpack filled with supplies for 2 High School Students
$25 = Backpack filled with supplies for 2 Elementary and 2 Middle or 3 High School Students
$50 = Backpack filled with supplies for 4 Elementary and 4 Middle or 7 High School Students
All donations are needed by Wednesday, August 10th.
