Being prepared for the first day of school is so very important and this initiative can make such a difference in a child's life. When Liam was still receiving chemotherapy and often at the hospital, we struggled to pay our bills and needed help. We learned first-hand just how much even small acts of kindness can positively effect life. When an organization donated art and school supplies to both of our children not only were my boys excited and happy, but my husband and I were beyond grateful to receive anything. I can imagine a book bag filled with school supplies would have the same impact on a child and their family.

Being prepared for school will help children be more equipped to succeed academically and creatively. Just imagine the smile you can bring to another child's face by giving them the tools they need to have a successful school year.
