Every summer, we collect new backpacks and school supplies and share them hundreds of local children in need in August. Donations are needed for all ages from preschool through high school. Gift cards for school clothing also are appreciated in June and July. Hold a collection and help local kids start school right!
Consider holding a sharing project collection of your own for NHCO and help local families in need! Click here for Tips for Collecting.
