Not even halfway through the summer and thoughts of “back to school” are already floating in minds. Actually, the thoughts have been going on for quite a while to help kids in need get ready for the August start date. After all, there’s a lot of behind-the-scenes arrangements that have to take place to get things going.
One such program is the “Give Back, Buy a Backpack” campaign that will “provide backpacks with school supplies and school uniforms to 1,000 children in need.” It the result of a partnership by the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center and Comerica Bank for a second year.
A campaign kicked off today to help provide the resources for the backpacks. For each $25, a a backpack will be provided for a child. If the goal is surpassed, then “the dollars will be directed to the life-changing work DCAC provides.” But the campaign will run through the month of July.
According to DCAC President/CEO Lynn Davis, “This campaign is a quick and easy way to make a difference in the life of a child, by providing them with the tools and resources they need to be successful in school. We are thankful for companies like Comerica who truly care about children in the Dallas community.”
To say these munchkins don’t have much is an understatement. A loaded backpack would would ease their return to school more than most adults can imagine. If you would like to donate, check here.
