Save the Family is collecting a wide range of school supplies and backpacks for needy children in the program so they can be ready to go to school and learn in the fall.
The school-supply drive is in preparation for the annual Back*2*School Bash on July 29, when children from kindergarten through 12th grade who are in the program pick out backpacks loaded with age- and grade-appropriate supplies.
The organization is a Mesa-based nonprofit that provides formerly homeless families with transitional housing, as well as opportunities to overcome poverty.
Anyone interested in donating or hosting a donation drive should contact Development Manager Maria Longley at 480-466-7714 or email her at email@example.com.
