It’s already that time. It may be summer to most people but here at Maggie’s Place, we’re already thinking about Back To School and our alumnae kids. Each year, for the past five years, we have asked the community to help send the children of our alumnae moms back to school prepared for success. Our hearts break at the thought of a child returning, or going for the first time, to school without the necessities like backpacks, lunch boxes, pencils and notebooks.
Did you know for $50 you can provide a needy child with a backpack filled with all the supplies they need? Backpacks always top the list. We are asking for sturdy packs that will last through the whole school year. A $25 donation will buy the perfect backpack for our kids. Ten dollars will supply one of our alumnae kids with a much needed lunchbox.
“The Back-to-School event helped me and my son out tremendously. It made me feel like a good mother. I could sit back and breathe knowing he was going to be prepared for school. He felt ready and excited for school knowing that he was fully prepared to learn!” – a Maggie’s Place alumnae mom. The difference you make in the life of even one child is tremendous.
You don’t even have to shop if you’d rather not. You can take a look at our Amazon Wish List here, choose items and have them shipped directly to Maggie’s Place. Don’t forget to designate Maggie’s Place as your charity of choice on Amazon Smile, which benefits our moms and babies each time you shop.
Making a financial donation is as easy as hitting this button.
We will gather our alumnae moms and kids to celebrate Back To School Day in our courtyard on July 21, giving them plenty of time to return to school ready to succeed!
