Volunteer: Preparing For Success: Donate School Supplies To Boys & Girls Clubs

 

                       

This year has moved pretty quickly and for organizations like Boys & Girls Club, we are already prepping for a new academic school year. Parents are reviewing the school supply lists and heading to the stores to make sure their children are prepared for their first day of school. This time of the year can be challenging for some families as some parents have limited incomes or may have lost their jobs. No child should have to experience discomfort at school due to no supplies. You can make a significant difference in the lives of Milwaukee’s youth by making a donation or coordinating an internal school supply drive. Contact Sophia Smith at 414-267-8111 for next steps in making a donation or to coordinate a school supply drive.

We thank you in advance for your support to the academic success of Milwaukee’s youth.
