Essentials for Kids

100% of money raised will go towards items that local teachers/liaisons identify kids/families may need, but don't necessarily have the means or ability to acquire themselves. This may include food, clothing, school supplies, etc. We will work directly with local family involvement liaisons. These liaisons work with local schools and can identify specific needs of children. This will allow us to know exactly what raised proceeds go towards. We will then be able to share these stories directly with our donors.

Please send check donations to:
