Sponsor a Classroom
During our recent Backpacks for Kids Drive we worked with School #2 in
Passaic and we have decided to debut our "Sponsor a Classroom"- Winter
Wishes Drive at the school. By offering continued support to a target
population, measurable change can be seen. We want children to see the
commitment we're making and feel empowered and supported to do their
best. Each child will fill out a gift tag stating their name, coat size,
favorite color and a holiday wish. Participants will receive the
wishes of the sponsored classroom and a toolkit to get started. We do
ask that all items remain unwrapped.
