ACHIEVEability believes that education is the key to helping families succeed and become self-sufficient. Not only do we support our single parents who are pursuing college degrees, we assist their children to excel in their academics.
In striving to break the generational cycle of poverty, we want to see our youth do well in school. Please consider helping ACHIEVEability to support our youth by donating to our Backpack Donation Drive. Your donation of a backpack filled with the essential school supplies will be a tremendous impact on our families. While ACHIEVEability can help offset some of their costs of living, our families are responsible for paying expenses such as rent, utilities, food, and childcare. This is no easy task considering most of our families come to us from homeless shelters, overcrowded/substandard living situations, environments of domestic violence, and have little to no education or income. Money is often nonexistent for essentials such as school supplies for their children. This is why this donation drive is so important! By donating a backpack filled with school supplies you can make sure that all of our children have what they need to be successful on the first day of school!
The following is a list of recommended school supplies. It is not necessary to follow this list. Each participant in our program should be provided with a backpack suitable to the age of the child or adult. Please note that backpacks should reach ACHIEVEability no later than August 17, 2012.
