Back to School Shopping Spree
On Saturday, August 14th, the Kiwanis Club of Glendale graciously coordinated a back to school shopping spree for the children in our shelter and rapid rehousing programs. 16 youth from Family Promise were paired with 16 Kiwanians, and each youth was provided a gift card with which to purchase much needed supplies in preparation for the first day of school. Many of our families, whether living in the shelter or in rapid rehousing units, were in need of an opportunity like this. Now, their children will be able to get a running start as they work toward long-term success and opportunity at school. Thanks again to the Glendale Kiwanians for making time to shop alongside such deserving youth!
