As a follow-up to the Back to School Supply Drive event, we just want to thank those of you who have made donations thus far. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. But, there is still more that we can do!
We were truly expecting to see a generous turnout at Tuesday's event based on last year's overwhelming intake and all of the responses that we received for this year's event. Unfortunately, our goals weren't met which is disappointing. The Neighbor to Neighbor Community Development Corporation is depending on our donations this year given the current economic environment and the fact that we provided such a large donation last year. We don't want to let them down. Let's make a difference in these children's lives by equipping them with some of the tools they'll need to get an education.
We are still accepting donations through next Thursday, August 27. You can either make arrangments with one of the meetup organizers to drop off school supplies OR you can make a monetary donation through Jennifer Dent's PayPal account ([address removed]). No donation is too small - $5 can purchase a book bag or some notebooks! Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments.
Service and giving back is at the core of what this meetup is about. Let's strengthen our commitment to empower our communities and make it count!
