Look Cool For School 2011

RSS XML FeedBackground Active Jul 18, 2011 to Aug 18, 2011

Do you remember what you wore on your first day of junior high? The beginning of a new school year is a critical time for making impressions and establishing friendships that follow children for much of their lives. It is an exciting and stressful time for all kids, but for children living in poverty it is also a time to worry about finding the money to pay for school supplies, backpacks, and clothing that will help them fit in with their peers. 


Help the kids of the Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless "look cool for school" by donating a backpack and a new outfit to a child in need. Gift certificates and cash or check donations are also accepted. 

Contact before August 6 to be matched with a child. 

All donations are due to AACH by Monday, August 23. As always, thank you for your support of AACH and our programs.
