School Program August 22-25, 2018
Back to school can be a fun and exciting time for kids. For some parents it can be a struggle to provide the supplies and clothes that are needed. The Vina Moses Center helps these families make it easier. Each child, in grades K-12, gets to have his or her shopping day. For some this will be the only pair of new shoes they get all year.
The school program's goal is to ensure that all children have the minimum in school supplies and clothing for the school year to come. This year we estimate 900 children to participate in the program. The Center provides new shoes for each child, new socks and underwear, a coat and two school outfits from the store racks as well as pens, pencils, paper and other necessary items for the classroom.
We serve 900 children in our annual School Program, that's a lot of pencils. This year we are in need of the following:
- Color Pencils
- Theme Books (college rule)
- Children's Clothing
- Socks and Underwear
- Cash Donations for Shoes
HOW YOU CAN HELP!
Sponsor a child for $50 dollars
Donate lightly used clothing
Donate new school supplies
Your sponsorship of a child will help pay for the cost of the school supplies, socks, underwear, shoes and some new clothing items that we do not have on our shelves. Typically we do not have enough money to ensure every child gets all the supplies but as a minimum each child gets pencils, pens, paper, eraser, ruler, spiral notebooks, lined paper and age appropriate things such as crayons, glue, etc.
School Program Volunteers
If you would like to be a volunteer for this particular program and see the many smiles on the faces of the children, then contact the center at firstname.lastname@example.org or call and leave a message. Of course, we have other jobs, like shopping for school supplies and picking up shoes from the stores and organizing the "school room" (our special setup for the school program). The Center makes many changes during the week of the School Program so we can use some “muscle’ on Monday and Tuesday August 20 and 21st. We always have room for your help.
