Back to School!

It’s hard to believe that it is already time for kids to get ready to go back to school, but alas, it is (too earlier in my opinion, but no one asked me!). Many kids get to take their supply lists and go to the store and pick out a new backpack and folders and notebooks and pencils, and all of the other items deemed necessary for learning, and of course, it all has to be decked out with the characters or style they choose. And then they will go to their new class that is stocked and ready for everything from science experiments to crafts to reading and writing.

But then there are the other kids. The ones that don’t get to go pick out all of the cool new school supplies. The ones whose schools aren’t filled with everything the teachers need to educate them the way they deserve. The Feed My Lambs schools are some of these schools. Feed My Lambs is a nonprofit ministry that provides free Christian pre-school to families in poverty. They are doing a great work, but because they are a nonprofit (that does not receive any federal funding), they still have a great deal of needs.

But we believe it doesn’t have to be that way. We believe we can join together to fill the classrooms with everything the teachers need and want, so that they can go through this school year providing their students the best school experience ever!
