Donate a backpack!

Help the kids of the Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless "look cool for school" by donating a backpack and a new outfit to a child in need.

Do you remember what you wore on your first day of junior high? The beginning of a new school year is a critical time for making impressions and establishing friendships that follow children for much of their lives. It is an exciting and stressful time for all kids, but for children living in poverty it is also a time to worry about finding the money to pay for school supplies, backpacks, and clothing that will help them fit in with their peers.

Help the kids of the Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless "look cool for school" by donating a backpack and a new outfit to a child in need.  If you want to help but don't have the time to shop, we are also accepting gift cards and monetary donations. Commitment forms are due by August 6, 2011.

Please contact Lauren Barth at lbarth@aachhomeless.org or 703-525-7177 ext. 23 to participate.
