Getting ready to go back to school is tough enough when you have a mom, dad, aunt, or uncle who are ready to go out and buy you the things you need to start off the new school year on the right foot.
It’s even harder when you’re living in a group or foster home and there’s no money available to buy you a new backpack, notebooks, or pencils.
At OCJ Kids we support an annual Tools 4 Success drive, designed to ensure that every kid who goes back to school can do so with one less thing to worry about.
2016 Collection Drive
Tools for Success Back to School Drive will run from:
July 8 – 30
