Families Forward Charlotte is in full (fundraising) swing! Since the launch of our website we have raised $18,200! To say we are grateful and overwhelmed doesn’t begin to cover the emotion. Still, our efforts have not subsided – our goals are big and to meet them, we must do more!
Our first initiative is the “School Supply Drive” in August. As you know, we have partnered with Hornets Nest Elementary School for the 2017-2018 calendar year. We aim to supply at least 100 children with a book bag filled to the brim with their class supplies. These items add up, and if there are multiple children under one roof it is sometimes impossible for our neighbors to provide these necessities. That’s where we come in! With your help, every child can start the year on equal footing. The confidence this breeds in young children is immeasurable and will hopefully lead to their future success.
We have multiple ways you can help! Host a donation drive at your organization, purchase items and pack book bags, or simply donate items by August 15th. Contact us at info@FamiliesForwardCLT.org to get more information about these opportunities – we will send our comprehensive supply list and make arrangements for pick-up or drop-off.
Every donation helps these children and their families feel worthy, included and loved. Thank you for your continued support of Families Forward Charlotte!
