The Future Promises Foundation, Inc. plans to hold its first annual Backpack Campaign this August as part of what will then be an ongoing community service effort in providing much needed school supplies to students within the Wilmington, New Castle, and Newark area of New Castle County. The Backpack Campaign asks community helpers, organizations, neighboring businesses, family and friends to purchase new backpacks and fill them with school supplies. These backpacks are then donated to scholars of all ages during a family night at the Future Promises Foundation facility.
Will you help us, help our children?
School starts August 27th. We are asking you to donate some of the things on the list below. Or, to make it easier, if you would donate a little money toward these things we will purchase them on your behalf and be sure to get them to the children.
Right now, Walmart has children’s backpacks on sale for as low as $2.47. It takes about $25 per child to completely outfit them with school supplies. We are asking for you to help with the purchase of those supplies or a donation that will go entirely to the children in our community and in our schools.
We are more than happy to arrange a pick up of your donations or you may drop off your donation and/or supplies to The Future Promises Foundation at Skypointe 807 N Union St, Wilmington, DE 19805 or by mailing it to Post Office Box 843, Bear DE 19701.
To schedule a pick up or if you’d like more information please give me a call or email at 302.689.3392, email@example.com.
On behalf of the kids you’ll be helping, thank you.
