August Backpack Donations | Women's Resource Center
We received a very generous donation of backpacks and the Women's Resource Center is fully stocked! If you would like to donate, they are in need of school supplies as well. Thank you so much for your generosity.
This month we are collecting backpack donations for the Women's Resource Center and would greatly appreciate your help. We will have a donation drop in the lobby of our office (info below).
The Women’s Resource Center provides support services, counseling, shelter and education to North San Diego County women, children, and men involved in or threatened by domestic violence. The WRC currently has 49 children living at the center or in transitional housing. Some of these children have had to leave behind their belongings to escape life threatening situations.
The children at WRC depend on the center for many of the things we take for granted. With the first day of school quickly approaching, we would like to help make these children feel special, important and ready to take on the school year. Our goal is to collect enough new backpacks to give one to each child living at the center. The children vary in ages all the way up to 15 years old, both boys (30 total) and girls (19 total).
Please help us give these children the confidence to take on their new lives and new school year by donating a new backpack before the school year starts on August 21st. We will have several special events over the next few weeks to collect backpacks or donations or you can stop by the Solis Team office at 6005 Hidden Valley Rd, Suite 200, Carlsbad, CA 92011 Monday though Friday, 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM. Our final day for collection will be Friday, August 17th. We will be at WRC on Monday, August 20th to deliver the backpacks and any extra funds collected for the children.
We truly appreciate you and your generosity!
