Nearly one in four children in our community live in poverty and can’t afford tools like notebooks, pencils, or backpacks to start the school year.

Ready to Learn: Back to School Supply Drive

It's officially summer. Most kids and teens have been in vacation mode for at least a few weeks and the first day of the 2015-2016 school year is far away in their minds. However, our annual Back to School Supply Drive is already collecting items. We've set a goal of 1,200 fully-stocked backpacks this year—an increase from last year's 1,101 record.
