YOU can help us turn a student who fears the first day of school...

to a student who looks forward to the first day of school.

DONATE ITEMS TO OUR SUPPLIES DRIVE IN JUNE/JULY

Starting school can be a stressful time in the best of circumstances. In some neighborhoods, parents are able to spend hundreds of dollars on back-to-school shopping, while many working poor families are struggling just to keep a roof over their heads.

Not having the right things on the first day of school has a huge impact not only a student’s self-confidence but also their readiness to learn. That’s why Foothill Unity Center’s Annual Back to School Distribution is such an important event.

With your support, we will help these students start the school year on a more even playing field. New backpacks, new clothing, school supplies, and even professional haircuts and manicures make a huge difference with how a student feels when they go back to school. We expect to register some 1,300 students grades K-College for our 21th Annual Back to School Distribution on August 6th at Santa Anita Park Race Track.

Can you help give them a better start to school with results that last all year long? Please send a check to Foothill Unity Center, Inc., 790 West Chestnut Avenue, Monrovia, CA 91016, or click Donate Now – and play a part in changing young lives.
