In a few days, Rainbow Days will host our 31st annual Back-to-School Celebration for children residing at partnering shelters and homeless-serving sites in the community. This event is sponsored by CAPTRUST, chaired by Carol Welwood and will feature honorary chair Josh Howard.
Through the Back-to-School Celebration, our mission is to provide students with the necessary tools, including backpacks, supplies and new school uniforms, so they feel just as prepared and confident as their peers. An estimated 1,300 students in need will benefit from this event as well as deliveries of tangible supplies to partnering sites.
Although our deadline for donations of school supplies and backpacks has passed, we are still in need of financial support
of our back-to-school efforts. Your monetary gift
in support of this project will help provide:
$25.00 = a new school uniform for a homeless child in Dallas ISD
$60.00 = a backpack filled with school supplies for a student in need
$100.00 = the entire Back-to-School Celebration experience for one child, including a backpack with school supplies, new school uniform and attendance at our carnival-style event next week
