Donate Backpacks and School Supplies Through August 11th
Today, more than ever, schools require students to come prepared with more of the tools needed to succeed. If a student does not have those tools, they not only fall behind, but are faced with the additional stigma of being from a low-income family.
Most working poor and low-income families in Marin County spend the majority of their income for rent and have little left for basic necessities such as clothing, food, healthcare, and education.
The Back to School program provides parents with the security of knowing their child has the tools he or she needs to begin the school year. Many low-income families simply do not have the income to purchase backpacks and school supplies for their children. These items can be dropped off to Ritter Center at 16 Ritter St in downtown San Rafael, Mon-Fri 9am-5pm through Monday, August 11, 2014.
