In order to reduce redundancies of back to school services in the city of Alexandria, Carpenter’s will only be providing back to school supplies to our residents. Our community case managed clients are being connected with other Back to School community programs in order to gather supplies. Though the way we are operating the Back to School event has changed, the need of our residents is as important as ever. This year, we ask that gift card donations be made in lieu of school supplies.
On August 27th our residential children will get together to celebrate back to school where they will receive school supplies, new school clothes generously provided by Circle of Hope members, and enjoy an ice cream social.
Please donate Target and Walmart gift cards to ensure that our children have a successful school year. For more information, please email Liz Salter at LizSalter@carpentersshelter.org.
