As children and families across Philadelphia are preparing for the upcoming school year, which will most likely be remote for many of our clients and their children, many issues including no school lunches, parents who have to work etc. begin to arise.
Every year, Youth Service, Inc holds an annual school drive to ensure the children have all the tools and resources they need for academic success., One example of the many families this drive assists is the Griffin family.
With a limited income, Mrs. Griffin reported to her case worker that she had no idea how she was going to get uniforms, sneakers and school supplies for her children. YSI’s annual Back to School drive was able to to provide uniforms and school supplies thanks to the generosity of supporters like yourself.
This year is even more critical with COVID-19 and remote learning, would you consider making a financial contribution or in-kind donation in support of our annual Back to School drive?
If you prefer to make an in kind donation, you can purchase online via our Amazon Charity list and your donation will be delivered directly to our office. Donations purchased otherwise can be dropped off at our office but need to be scheduled by contacting our Marketing Manager, Dan Brightcliffe, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 215-222-3262
