Adopt-A-Child Backpack Program
We hope that you will be able to make a difference through a donation this year, since the need is greater than ever before. This year we are asking donors to purchase a backpack and supplies, and instead of clothes, we are requesting that donors (if they are able and willing) provide a gift card from a store that can be reached by public transportation (for example Wal-mart, Kohls, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls) for the child’s parent or guardian to purchase them clothes for the first day of school.
For more information or to sign up to participate in our program please e-mail Kimberly Hernandez at firstname.lastname@example.org or Donna Koser at email@example.com or give us a call at (860) 582-9559. Once you sign up you will be provided with the gender and grade for each child that you adopt as well as a list of school supplies needed.
Thank you again for opening your heart to support the Live United movement by giving through United Way.
