YWCA School Days

Many homeless and low-income children dread the beginning of school. They feel embarrassed and scared about returning to school in old clothes or hand-me-downs without the necessary notebooks, pencils, and other school supplies.
   You can help by participating in the YWCA's School Days Project. Shop for and purchase a new outfit, school supplies, backpack for a specific child, or donate funds so the YWCA can purchase gift certificates for these children.
   This is a possible project for individuals, churches, civic groups, employee groups or for parents to do with their own children.
   For more information, contact Brenda McCallon, YWCA Community Resources Coordinator, at (206) 461-3214 or email mccallon@ywcaworks.org.
