Help us send the kids BACK TO SCHOOL

by Emily Roberts | Jul 15, 2013

The children of The Family Place need your help to start the 2013-14 school year. As the back to school shopping season begins, please keep in mind the families who do not have the resources to shop for the supplies on their school supply list. The Family Place provides backpacks filled with DISD suggested supplies and uniforms to children throughout our shelter, transitional housing and outreach programs. With a 30% increase in clients at the Safe Campus over the last six months, your contributions will help us equip these kids with the supplies they need for the upcoming school year.

Summer Activites Still Needed
Want to help before the kids go back to school? We are looking for donations for tickets to local area attractions or donations to buy tickets so we can take the children from our Safe Campus summer program on a fun trip! Please contact Greg Bosworth if you can help.

Thank you in advance!
