We need your help!

We are collecting donations for a Back to School Backpack Fundraiser!

Currently, we host programming that serves 30+ kids. As the school year is just around the corner, and some families may not be able to afford supplies, we started a GoFundMe campaign to help get them ready.

For roughly $20, we can afford to outfit one student with the essentials: a backpack, writing utensils, a crayon box, a ruler, a notebook, scissors, and glue.

Please donate here!
