Here's Why We Need Your Help

As a child, the end of the summer is synonymous with going back to school and that means back to school shopping! Remember going back to school on the first day with that comfy back pack, those cool shoes and that perfect binder that described you to a T! Oh yeah, that's what it was all about, showing up on the first day of school feeling cool, confident and ready to conquer the new year. Although in order to feel like that you needed all the necessary back to school items to fit in with your peers. Unfortunately that list is getting longer and longer every year and it's getting harder and harder for foster parents to get all of those supplies for their children in foster care. That's where you come in! We need your help to make the first day of school amazing for our children in foster care.
