Project Back to School 2018

Hello everyone!!

It's that time of year, school will soon be in session!! This is when parents/guardians take their kids back to school shopping to prepare them for the upcoming school year. Unfortunately, children living at the shelter are there without their families and the families in need don't have enough money to cover the supplies. We are kindly asking for your help.

Project Back to School is currently collecting NEW backpacks and school supplies for approximately 40 children. 100% of the donations collected directly benefit children attending Centennial, Central Bucks and Pennridge School Districts.

Since 2015, we’ve sponsored over 130 children and needy families in the area. Together with our donors and sponsors, Project Back to School gifts new clothing, shoes, backpacks and school supplies to local children in need. Each year at the shelter we host a private picnic and back to school party the weekend before school starts.

Note: The Community Center that recently opened, will be hosting their party this year!! We will be collecting items listed below:
