While many of us are learning a “new normal” because of the Covid-19 pandemic, a lot of kids in the South Bronx never could count on their safety and security. And now, they’re going back to school soon.
Here in the South Bronx, 49% of children live in poverty. That means families may have to choose between filling their children’s backpacks, or their bellies.
Starting school with the right supplies keeps kids in school. All month, your donation will give kids in our community the opportunities they deserve. Will you help make a difference in a child’s education?
What your donation will give kids: Pens, pencils, papers, folders, binders, backpacks, highlighters, crayons, markers, glue, tape, calculators, notebooks, erasers, rulers, sharpies, composition books, scissors, and more!
Let’s give our South Bronx kids a backpack full of supplies that will help them succeed this 2020 school year! You can help by contributing what you can to address this dire need. No amount is too small.
All donations made between now and August 30th will go towards this fund. We look forward to improving the lives of the people you care about.
