I wrote about the Camden Rescue Mission when, due to increased need, they were very short on gifts to give neighborhood kids at their annual Christmas party. (Camden is one of America’s poorest cities.)
Now they’re doing this. If you can, donate here. You’d be amazed at how much better you feel about the rest of the world when you accomplish one small thing.
For the past 10 years the Camden Rescue Mission with your help has successfully given book bags and school supplies to needy children in the City of Camden. Corporate Businesses, Churches, individual’s donors and even the Philadelphia Eagles have helped us raise not only book bags but school supplies, new clothing, uniforms, under garments, socks, and
Our focus is on making the first few days of school a great experience.
The children that receive the book bags and supplies are children with
single parents, grandparents raising children or a large family.
Your help is need in helping us reach our goal of 800 children. You could
help with a donation of a book-bag filled with school supplies for children 1st grade thru college, or you could send a donation for us to purchase book
bags and school supplies. We will distribute the Book-bags and supplies on
Tuesday, August 31, 2011 at 12:00 noon, at the Camden Rescue Mission,
1634 Broadway, Camden, 08104.
Thank you for helping us to continue to help our children start another
school year with the right tools to succeed.
