Prepping all of our Back to School donations!
We are so excited to be able to bless the girls with stuffed backpacks .
In one day we have added:
26 pencil sharpeners, 40 flash drives, 20 binders, 26 packs of markers,
26 packs of colored pencils, 25 lanyards, 26 folders, 15 composition books,
16 scissors, enough deodorant for each teen, hygiene products…
Still to come from donors: spiral notebooks, pens, glue, loose leaf paper, dividers…
Our post has been viewed over 1k times. My heart is full.
I was already grateful for what we had to give them,
brand new back packs, body wash, enough funds for basic supplies.
Now, we are on track to give things like makeup, shampoo and conditioner,
loofahs, pencil pouches… those “extra” things that are easy to take for granted,
I know I do.
I cannot wait to stuff these bags and deliver them to the girls.
My favorite part is being able to see the them light up when
they get something that’s new
and something they can call their own.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to everyone
who is making this event a success
even though it looks a bit different than last year.
Here is an update to additional items we need.
I have also updated our Amazon wishlist.
– 24 packs of loose leaf paper
– 26 packs of graphing paper
– 26+ Highlighters
– Makeup items
– Gently used purses (I have about 10, but need 15 more for all the girls to have one)
I would also love to add more makeup and hygiene items,
but that would be a lower priority at this time.
