Despite her full-time job, Kathy was constantly faced with making the impossible decision between paying rent or providing her children with basic essentials like clothing, toiletries, and school supplies.
This meant Kathy’s two kids went to school empty handed.
But once she received a package from us, including backpacks, notebooks, pencils, and more for both her children, she felt an immediate sense of relief:
There are no words to express our deep felt gratitude for the amazing help you have been to our family...to see all the school supplies...it really warmed our hearts and helped us see the light in our time of darkness...
We all know how crucial it is for our kids to do well in school.
For children like Kathy’s, basic school supplies like pencils, paper, and erasers are hard to come by.
For families that cannot afford these items, their kids are put at a huge disadvantage and have a higher risk of falling behind in school.
Making a Difference is Easy.
You have the power to do something simple that will make a tremendous impact in a child’s life.
