Back Our Students Drive

Countless children start the new school year BEHIND — no backpack to wear, no school supplies of their own. Many come from families who struggle to put food on the table. More than you probably know live in homeless shelters ...

Help us give school children the tools to START STRONG!  
Let's give them a feeling of CONFIDENCE and HOPE
as they walk into the classroom on the first day of school.

If you have the means, please consider donating to help NC schoolchildren succeed. The next person to help a child in need ... could be you.
