I know, I know–didn’t summer just start? For our families there is always the concern about what is next. We can’t alleviate every worry, but we can help make things a little easier with your help.  We are currently collecting new school supplies for the school aged children in our program–about 50 kids from kindergarten through 12th grade.

Why new items? Think about the first day of school for a moment–the excitement that comes from a brand new year.  You have your back pack on with your favorite character on it, your notebook in your favorite color, freshly sharpened pencils, your hand selected outfit–it adds to the enthusiasm you have thinking about the school year ahead.  We want all kids to feel that.  We want them to be excited for another year of school.

This summer will be gone before we know it.  Fairfax County Public Schools are back in session on August 28th this year, so with a little over 6 weeks left to go we want to ask if you can help us get kids ready for school? All donations must be received by Monday, August 20th.  You can order off our Amazon wishlist, where the items will be shipped to our door, email LaurenB@christianrelief.org to schedule a supply pickup or drop off, or donate to Safe Places to fund a backpack filled with supplies for $50.

 

Thanks for all of your help!
