Imagine being the only child to start school without a new backpack and school supplies…
Education is essential to break the cycle of poverty. With your help, hundreds of children in our community will take another step in that direction.
Sometimes the only difference between an A+ student and a failing student is having basic supplies to do homework and participate in class. Because 69% of the children served by Community Partners of Miami and Broward live on a family income of less than $14,000 annually, after the most basic of needs of the family are met, school supplies may not fit into that budget.
