On Monday, August 17th, The Homeless Children’s Education Fund along with some volunteers came to HEARTH in a school bus to drop off wonderful backpacks and boxes that contained school supplies such as notebooks, folder, pens, pencils, crayons, markers, glue sticks, scissors, pencil boxes, loose paper etc. to our children. We received approximately 60 backpacks for elementary aged children and 10 backpacks for our teens. HCEF, in conjunction with Citizen’s Bank, donated all of the backpacks and goodies to fill them. Our families were so thrilled to receive this donation. It helped immensely to offset the costs of purchasing back to school supplies for their children. We thank HCEF and Citizen’s Bank for providing us with such a great need for our families.
