Back To School

Wow is it really July 12th already? How fast time flies! We know that school just ended for most the first part of June but here at the Homeless Families Foundations we are already in full motion so we can be ready for the new school year in August.

Our goal this year as well as in years past is to provide each elementary child with 2 new outfits, new socks, underwear and a backpack full of supplies. For our Middle School and High School children we give them a budget and take them shopping. With guidance, most have come home with 4 tops, 2 pairs of pants and accessories.

It is a very exciting time but we need your help! We are currently accepting donations of new clothing, socks, underwear, and cash (for teenage shoppers/to purchase outfits and uniforms). We will also need volunteers to assist with organizing donations, filling the backpacks with supplies, shopping for uniforms and assisting our teenagers with their shopping experience.

If you have any questions or are interested in assisting us this year you can call Karie @ (614) 461-9247 or e-mail kgallegos@homelessfamiliesfoundation.org

Thank you for your continued support and have a wonderful day!
