BACK TO SCHOOL COLLECTION- When you think of “back-to-school,” images of new clothes, book bags, notebooks, pencils, new teachers and friends may come to mind. But for some families this year, the return to school is dreaded. Will YOU help me give a HAND UP to local children/teens in need and ensure they will begin the school year with the tools they need to succeed? The first day of school should be a day of excitement, but for a child in need the excitement can quickly turn to anxiety. Will they have shoes that fit to wear to school? Will they have a back pack? Will they have all the school supplies to start off the school year? Our mission at The Angels Community Outreach is to help children/teens return to school with dignity. We will fulfill this task by supplying the kids/teens the items they need to start off the school year just like their peers.
What makes our Back-to-School Event special is that the children who attend our event get to choose. So often when you are in need you have things given to you. We want the kids to have a chance to pick out the backpack and school supplies they like. They get to choose their favorite color/character backpack and school supplies. Each child that attends our event will be provided lunch, receive a back-to-school haircut, new socks & underwear, pajamas, brand new sneakers and will walk around from table-to-table to choose their own backpack and back-to-school items.
We will hold our 8th Annual Back to School Event on Sunday August 26th.
