School Supply Drive 2020
July 10, 2020 @ 8:00 am - July 18, 2020 @ 5:00 pm CDT
At Nebraska Children’s Home Society, we have made a promise to ensure children begin school ready to learn. To do this, children need the proper supplies: backpack, pencils, notebooks, crayons, etc. Unfortunately, there are many children we serve who do not have access to these items.
We started providing school supplies to the children we serve ten years ago at our Annual Neighborhood Celebration, located at our Children and Family Center (3549 Fontenelle Blvd). Last year, alone, we supported almost 250 children!
Kids and parents line up hours beforehand in hopes of getting not only supplies but also a backpack. We have been able to give EACH CHILD a backpack AND school supplies for the past three years. However, this year will look a bit different due to COVID-19.
In lieu of a neighborhood celebration, families will participate in a drive-through or arrange a time to pick up their supplies. Regardless of how the school year starts, is disrupted or ends, NCHS will remain a constant in giving these kids the supplies they need to start learning on time. Will YOU help us make it four years in a row!?
