August 1-14, 2015: Book Bag Drive for Peace on the Streets
A Note from our President, John Gilmore:
Do you remember the excitement of going back to school? The anticipation of seeing all your friends, back to school shopping, and most importantly picking out your new book bag! A lot of kids in the communities we serve will not experience the feeling of “new” school clothes on their back. And a cool book bag is probably out of the question…or is it?
We’re looking for a $5 donation to buy book bags and school supplies. You might not think $5 makes a huge impact, but in this case your support will go towards buying a child a vehicle to transport knowledge and information. I think that’s considered a HUGE impact. Let’s get these kids some bags. We appreciate your support!
