Shoes and Clothes for Kids: Stuff the bus
July 30 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Help Caring Cubs stuff the bus with school supplies for local children! Caring Cubs is bringing back this annual event in a new way! Caring Cubs board members will be outside the Kids in Need Resource Center for a drive thru school supply drop-off on Friday, July 30 from 11am to 1pm.
SC4K often receives requests from teachers for art supplies but these are items that are not donated as often as basic supplies. These items are also difficult for many families to afford to purchase for their students. Caring Cubs would like to help by focusing on the following art supplies to help spur creativity from students and teachers! Please consider donating the following: construction paper, colored pencils, markers, craft sticks, glitter glue, pipe cleaners, playdough, sketchbooks, washi tape, watercolor paper, and/or paint and paint brushes.
Cleveland Kids in Need is a program of Shoes and Clothes for Kids (SC4K), that helps to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed by providing free school supplies to teachers of the students who are most in need. It is SC4K’s firm belief that no child’s academic achievement should be disrupted simply because they don’t have the proper tools.
Cleveland Kids In Need and SC4K bridge the gap between great need and available resources to provide school supplies to teachers and their students. Each year, the program receives more than $1 million worth of nationally- and locally-donated supplies for distribution.
For those unable to attend the drop-off event on July 30 or would like to volunteer in another way, we are also offering a Caring Mail component to this service project! Teachers go above and beyond for their students everyday and we want them to know how much they are appreciated in the community. Families may decorate and sign thank you cards to teachers and SC4K volunteers will include them in the school supplies that teachers receive. Please drop off the cards on July 30 or mail them by that date to:
Shoes and Clothes for Kids at 3661 Perkins Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44114.
We want to make the next school year the best it can be for local students and hope you can help us to stuff the bus for Cleveland students!
