Give a Child the Confidence Needed to Succeed Now – August 20

It may feel like summer just started, but ‘Back to School’ is just around the corner! Children throughout the community will pick out new pencils, notebooks, binders and more for their first day of school. When children return to school without these basic school supplies, it can have a devastating impact on their education.

Unfortunately, many parents of children in Oaks Integrated Care programs cannot afford new backpacks and essential supplies for the upcoming school year. These essential items will give a child hope and the confidence needed to start the school year off on the right foot!
