Steven’s Hope for Children To Help Children Prepare For Upcoming School Year
Since 2003, Steven’s Hope for Children has been working to provide families the necessities that many families struggle to obtain financially. Aside from the basics of food, shelter and clothing, Steven’s Hope tries to help families and children be normal.
Often times, preparing a child for school is overlooked or just set aside because of finances. While the problem may not seem catastrophic or critical, it is important and one that can be easily resolved.
Once again, Steven’s Hope is holding a backpack drive to help children be prepared for a successful school year.
“Our goal is to provide 100 children fully stocked backpacks for the new school year,” said Sandy Cappelli, Vice President and Operations Director for Steven’s Hope. ”The backpacks will be distributed to children in need entering grades K through 12. We just need support from the community to help reach the goal.”
A list of items that are needed to fill the backpacks can downloaded from the Steven’s Hope by clicking the link below. This year all backpacks, supplies and donations need to be received by July 30. Deliveries should be made to:
Steven’s Hope for Children, 1014 W. Foothill Blvd, Suite # B, Upland, CA.
For those that are short on time and would still like to make a donation, a $25.00 donation can help purchase the supplies for these children. Donations can be made by calling the office 866-3-STEVEN or online by clicking Donate Now and select School Backpack Drive.
