Children in need for school
Organized by: Tim and Marie Thompson
EVENT DATE Jul 14, 2014
My Wife and i are T and M Ministries, we are not a 501C yet, but we are seeking to get this taking care of once all the paper work is in.
We had 25 students ages 6-15 years old in need of clothes, shoes, book bags, and supplies to start school with out stress. I say we had 25, because of our passion and word getting out, we now have 29 students. These come from single parent homes, to parents that have been laid off due to economy, or as a few, due to medical issues that has hurt the family living conditions.
Many children are ridiculed each year because they go the first day with out. Our goal is to make them feel comfortable on their first day, and build confidence.
We have teamed with a local church to have the pick up of items, and the ladies of the church plan to give lunch and prayer for those seeking.
$10,000.00 may sound like a lot, but that is less than $400.00 per child, and at the cost of shoes, clothes, under garments, book bag, calculators, paper, and every thing needed, it is a small amount per child.
