Checks due for Back to School Program
The Temple Hesed Social Action Committee is gearing up for its annual back to
school backpack project for 2019. Lackawanna County children in need, identified by local social service agencies, are provided with new clothing and a backpack filled with supplies for the first day of school. Please consider supporting this very worthwhile project.
You can be matched with a child (grades K to 6th) to provide all or some of the needed items, or you can make a cash donation and we will purchase the items for you. Full sponsorship for a child is $100, but any monetary donation will be greatly appreciated.
Please contact Temple Hesed at 570-344-7201 if you wish to sponsor a child, and
provide an email address where we can send you the child’s information. Or you can
email Larry Milliken directly at email@example.com and let me know how many children you want to sponsor and if you have gender or grade preferences. Checks should be made out to Temple Hesed, with “Back to School” designated in the memo line, and should be sent to Temple Hesed by July 31. Donations of backpacks and school supplies can be dropped off at Temple Hesed or the JCC reception area during normal business hours through August 16th.
Your contribution will help ensure that children start the school year with the confidence and tools they need to succeed. Thank you in advance for your participation. “It takes a community to raise a child.”
