The start of a new school year is filled with anxiety and academic challenges and many children return to school unprepared — lacking the basic tools needed for success. That’s why St. Louis REALTORS® and our Affiliate Council are partnering once again with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis to provide backpacks filled with school supplies to local children in need. The backpacks have been purchased by the association.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO PURCHASE SUPPLIES.
Please join us by participating in our Supplies for Success Program. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis provides after school, summer, teen and sports programs for youth ages 6-18 across six Clubs in St. Louis City & County. The Clubs are open during hours that kids are most likely to need a safe place to go – after school and during the summer. In 2015, 75% of Club members lived in single-parent households; 88% were at the low income limit poverty level; and 68% qualified for the federal free or reduced-price lunch. This is a great opportunity for you to help the community and get children excited for the 2017-2018 school year.
Participation is EASY!
