SUPPLIES 4 SUCCESS
The start of a new school year is filled with anxiety and academic challenges and many children return to school unprepared — lacking the basic tools needed for success. That’s why St. Louis REALTORS® Affiliate members and Office Depot are partnering together to help the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis provide backpacks filled with school supplies to local children in need.
Please join us by participating in our Supplies for Success Program. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis provides after school, summer, teen and sports programs for youth ages 6-18 across six Clubs in St. Louis City & County. The Clubs are open during hours that kids are most likely to need a safe place to go – after school and during the summer. In 2015, 75% of Club members lived in single-parent households; 88% were at the low income limit poverty level; and 68% qualified for the federal free or reduced-price lunch. This is a great opportunity for you to help the community and get children excited for the 2016-2017 school year.
