Do you remember how much fun it was to get new school supplies when you were a child? Parents want their children to have everything they need for a good education, but in Appalachia, this privilege is sometimes an impossibility. The Mission of Hope needs your help with its Back to School program.
Our 2011 Back to School Collection is underway and runs through July 31st. The 2011 campaign will be our 14th annual event and we plan to assist over 10,000 Appalachian children with the school supplies they will need to get a good start to their school year.
Food City and WBIR-TV 10 are sponsoring a Blue Barrel collection drive at all the area Food City locations for school supplies. You can purchase the pre-packaged bag for $10 or shop and select the supplies of your choice.
