Friends of 400
Can you remember the excitement of the first day of school when you were a child? You may have taken for granted having all your supplies "like the other kids" but many here in Huntsville cannot. For $20, you can ensure that an underprivileged child gets a Great First Day in school by arriving with the correct supplies, complete with backpack. This program benefits some great kids in the Searcy Housing Community (near the VBC and the Coca Cola Plant) and inner city Boy Scout Troop 400/Cub Pack 400.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR INVOLVEMENT:
&bull- Sponsor a child by donating $20. Donations are tax deductible. Checks should be made out to "Friends of 400 Foundation" or go to www.friendsof400.com and click donate. Tax receipts will be provided.
&bull- Volunteer to pack school supplies - On Friday, August 2nd at 6:00 pm (Farrar Scout Hut at Searcy - 426 Dallas Ave), volunteers are needed pack the backpacks in preparation for the party.
&bull- Volunteer for the School Supply Store and Picnic - Volunteers are needed to help hand out supplies at the "school supply store" and food at the picnic on Sunday, August 4th, 1:30 -4:30 pm (Farrar Scout Hut at Searcy)
