Do you remember what is was like starting a brand new school year with a fresh set of school supplies?
Without the help of our community, many of the children we serve will not be starting their school year with that same excitement and support. Many will go back to school wishing for a new back pack or new school supplies.
They just want the same chance for success as the other kids in their class.
Each year, the Children's Advocacy Center partners with local corporations and community members like you to host the annual Back-to-School Fair.
The Back-To-School Fair is a fun-filled evening complete with games, music, face-painting, and refreshments in a family-friendly atmosphere. This event equips children who are current clients of the Children’s Advocacy Center or Child Protective Services for the new school year by providing them with brand new backpacks, shoes, haircuts, and school supplies.
In 2017, you helped to make sure that over 500 children with a history of abuse or neglect were going to school with the supplies they need.
