Friends, family, pizza, pool & helping area foster children prepare for the new school year with confidence. What could be better?
We’re having a POOL PARTY benefitting Kids to Love (http://www.kidstolove.org/) on Monday, July 28, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.!! Grab your kids, your spouse & your friends - and a BACKPACK OR SCHOOL SUPPLIES and head on over to Piedmont Pool (Homewood Drive 35801). I hope you can make it! Food Fighters Bustaurant will be there, too, so you don’t have to cook dinner that night!
Just Cause members and their friends and families can get into the pool (without a guest fee) with a donation of a backpack OR bag of brand-name school supplies OR monetary donation.
Children are often apprehensive about their first few days of school and for foster children, who may be starting the school year in a new home, with new friends and teachers, the first days can be even more nerve-racking. Having a new backpack and the same school supplies as their peers gives them the confidence to start the school year with fewer first-day jitters. 20 percent of foster children are more likely to drop out of school and twice as likely to repeat a grade. Programs like the Kids to Love Pack the Backpacks School Supplies initiative help them excel both in school and through the rest of their lives.
Feel free to drop off backpacks or school supplies on my porch (415 Homewood Drive 35801) if you are unable to attend the party but still want to donate. Thank you so, so, so much!!! See you soon!
