School is Cool   – Saturday, August 22, 2015
We officially kick off the campaign drive on June 1, 2015 and collect through the day of the party, August 22, 2015.  We make every effort to provide a school uniform, shoes and a back pack filled with the appropriate school supplies for school age children in our program. Each year we have approximately 300 current and former clients participate in a two-hour party of food, games and catching up before handing out the bag of goodies. You are welcome to contribute school supplies, back packs or donate funds to secure uniforms and/or shoes.
