Imagine you were a carpenter o mechanic and you were received your 1st account. However after the excitement you realized that you didn’t have adequate tools to complete the job? How would you feel? Many At-risk kids feel unprepared and or inadequate to perform their best in school because they simply don’t have the proper supplies or tools that inspire them to do their best work. This is where you come in.
Our Tools for School program connects kids with needs with people who care and together we provide new backpacks filled with new school supplies to local school-age kids, as well as local schools and teachers in the Ravenswood School district. With your generous support, we can also donated brand new computer systems to the schools, homework and after-school youth center.
The children, their families and facilitators are very grateful for your support. The After-School Director of Ronald McNair Middle School wrote, “Thank you for your generous donations. Many students at this school are considered economically disadvantaged and the backpacks and school supplies will be a critical step towards helping these students succeed in this school year.”
In 2015 we hope to distribute over 500 backpacks filled with school supplies that we will deliver to needy children and youth in the East Palo Alto. There are still many children that can benefit from our program. With the help of donors like you, we will be able to meet our goal of 500 filled backpacks for 2015 and beyond.
If you can provide backpacks or any school supplies through your network or other resources, please let us know and we will gladly accept your donations towards this program. Your donations are 100% tax deductible.
