Event description

Description

Each year we host a Back to School Backpack Drive to supply new backpacks with 1 year of school supplies for students in the Acres Home Community where 90% + of the children come from low income families.We need your help to raise at least 500 full backpacks for the undeserved populations to ensure that ALL students have an opportunity to succeed in school.


Studies show that children raised in a low socioeconomic are faced daily with overwhelming challenges that affluent children never have to confront, and their brains have adopted suboptimal conditions in ways that undermine good school performance. This reality does not mean that success in school or life is impossible, however it does pose a huge disadvantage for these communities.

At Creating Roles of Winners (C.R.O.W.N.S) we seek to help combat some challenges that students in these communities are faced by provided resources that promotes students to become WINNERS in their situations. . While we already provide Fresh Fruit Curriculum, a curriculum that teaches the 9 fruit of the spirit in the form of character traits and how to implement these through their daily decisions, we still have a lot to accomplish.

We need your support as we raise funds and resources for our 3rdAnnual Back To School Bash. To date C.R.O.W.N.S has provided school supply filled backpacks to over 800 students in the Acres Home Community and aim to grow our impact by providing 500 filled backpacks, shoes, school uniforms and other resources that will help not only students but their families and support systems.
