Remember that excited feeling starting the new school year? Maybe you had a new outfit or new shoes, a brand new backpack with fresh notebook and pens.
Kids in your neighborhood and throughout California are starting school today and over the next few weeks. But for some, it’s a time of great anxiety. They may have had to change schools and don’t have the needed supplies or clothes.
We’re talking about children who are healing from abuse, severe neglect or trauma. They may be foster kids or receiving other services to help turn their lives around.
You can be part of that healing process by helping get their school year off to a good start. Donations or school supplies and backpacks are needed in your community. Find out more.
