For parents, August usually means getting their children ready for ”back to school”. They go around the various stores hoping to get the best deals on those essential items for their children’s new school year. Depending on each school’s requirements, the final bill may be hard to swallow, especially for low-income families.
In order to help those families, Sun Youth holds an annual school supplies distribution. We offer a variety of essential supplies (backpacks, notebooks, pens, pencil cases, etc.) that we receive as donations, as well as brand new material that we buy with donated money. Each year, hundreds of kids are equipped for the new school year. We also offer registered families new clothing : for Sun Youth, taking care of parents means contributing to a better future for the whole family.
