It’s easy for us to imagine the big dreams of kids. We all had them: becoming an astronaut, an artist, or a professional sports player. Sometimes, however, we forget about the little dreams. About how having a new backpack that isn’t ripped or having a stack of new pens would make everything better. Children living in poverty have all of those dreams – big and small – the same as every other child in America.
Kids from struggling families dread showing up on the first day without a backpack, notebooks, sneakers, calculator, or lunchbox. For some, it might look like just a pack of pencils or a backpack, but to those we serve, it’s new hope for having a successful school year.
To help even the playing field, we need your help.
Now until August 10, Phoenix Family is hosting its "Operation Backpack" Campaign to make sure that every student we serve has the supplies they need to start the school year off with a bang.
