SEND A CHILD BACK TO SCHOOL


Each year we host in event in the city of Hazleton to benefit the less fortunate children in our area. The beginning of school can often be stressful for families who do not have enough finances to provide for their children's school supplies. We try to ease that burden by providing back pack's full of school supplies and gently worn clothes and shoes. We are always in need of back packs and school supplies such as pencils, pens, erasers, notebooks, rulers, etc. If you would like to donate or volunteer please contact us at 1-570-636-1383. You can also mail a donation to

52 Foster Avenue Freeland, Pa 18224.
