On, Sunday October 12, 2014; Rob will be running the Army Ten-Miler in support of Umbrella Initiatives. His goal is to provide support to additional 120 kids so that they can participate in the Backpack Project by raising $3,000.00 during the run.
The Backpack Project provides a better start for children living in poverty through providing a backpack, supplies, and one week of scholastic reinforcement for children in need. Umbrella works with local churches and community organizations providing the materials and supplies in addition to a general plan of action for the groups to use. The community groups work with local schools in their area and sign agreements to use the school’s classrooms for the week of classes.
For 2015, the goal of the project is to reach 2,000 children for 2015. However, to make this possible, Umbrella needs support to reach those in needs. Specifically through your support of $25.00 we can provide one backpack and supplies for one child and cover related cost such as programmatic work and refreshments during the week of class.
So donate today to help provide an improved opportunity for children to have the material and motivation to study.
