ADOPT A KID, WHY NOT TWO OR THREE!
LET’S MAKE OUR GOAL OF $5,000 THIS SUNDAY!!
WE WILL BE ACCEPTING BACKPACKS, SUPPLIES, AND YOU CAN ALSO DONATE WITH CASH OR CREDIT CARDS!!
WATCH NBC4 ON THURSDAY AT 4PM TO SEE MCCDC TALK ABOUT BACKPACKS 4KIDS!
WHY NOT HIT OUR GOAL EARLY!!! THIS SUNDAY WILL BE THE BACKPACK DAY TO REMEMBER!!
LET’S MAKE OUR GOAL OF $5,000! WE ARE JUST OVER $3,500-ROUGHLY 170 KIDS!
In partnership with the community outreach program at NBC4 Washington, we are collecting backpacks and supplies (and credit card or check donations that would allow us to purchase those items). It only takes $20 to equip one student with a backpack and supplies for the school year. Why not adopt one kid, maybe two–how about 5!! Our goal is to provide OVER 300 kids with backpacks and supplies for the coming year. We are also encouraging our neighbors to help with the backpack program by donating supplies! We will be collecting supplies and donations over the next three weeks! You can also reach out to folks at your work or send this eblast to family and friends!! Help MCCDC help kids in our community!!
