Kicking Off the Back-to-School Drive!

What a great way to jumpstart our 2014 Back to School Drive! Thank you for all of your continued support!

With 80% of jobs created in the next decade requiring STEM skills, these backpacks and supplies which you helped provide can help break the cycle of poverty for children by giving them the tools they need to thrive in the classroom and beyond.

As of today, your donations will help 49 students get ahead of the curve and come into the classroom prepared to learn. According to Geoff Vu from the Roots Academy in Oakland, donations like these “relieve a tremendous burden that no child or family should have to carry”. On behalf of the children we help, thank you!

Our Back to School warehouse opens in the beginning of August. There the backpacks will be stuffed, sorted according to school, and picked up for distribution to the students before the first day of classes for the 2014 school year.
