Since 2004, the Back to School Project has provided hundres of local, disadvantaged school-aage children with a shopping day to purchase new clothing, shoes and backpacks in preparation for the new school year.
The Back to School Project believes that every child should return to school with pride, dignity and a feeling of self-worth.
Throughout the summer the organization runs several events to help raise money for the coming school year. The first event concerns applying for the program. For three days only, the organization will be accepting applications at the Lariat Bowl in Red Bluff. (365 Main Street). Families can apply for inclusion in the Back to School Project from 12 to 7 pm on June 14, 15, and 16. For details on qualifying for this program, see the website at www.backtoschoolproject.com. You can find out about the other planned fundraising events through August, in preparation for the next semester on the website.
All donations are tax-deductible. Please consider supporting this worthy foundation.
