It’s hard to believe that the back to school season is right around the corner. The sad part is that there are lots of family and children in our area that cannot afford the supplies needed to start off the school year. Caring For Kids provides many services to local families and children, one being able to provide basic school supplies in a new backpack to 200 children in their care from our community.
Listed below are some of the items that are needed to help these children prep for the 2017-2018 school year. Employees will be permitted to wear Jeans to work in exchange for a monetary or item donation.
