It is hard to believe that summer is almost over and school is starting again! Family Lifeline is thrilled to see some of our preschool children in CHIP, Healthy Families, and Parents as Teachers begin kindergarten, as well as to see their siblings ready for successful school years as well. We are so proud of them – and of their parents for getting them ready to learn.
Back-to-school shopping provides supplies that give children the best possible start to the new school year. Many Family Lifeline families could greatly benefit from having backpacks and supplies provided for their young children. Together, we can make a difference. Richmond Public Schools elementary school supply lists can be found online here. We are in need of backpacks for each grade level – simply label your donated backpacks with the grade level for which they are filled.
Please deliver filled backpacks to Family Lifeline by Wednesday, August 22nd.
We can also go shopping for you! Contact Nikki Shaw via email or at 804.249.5424 with questions or for details about monetary donations.
Thank you so much for your support!
