According to the National Retail Federation, the average family spends almost $700 on children’s clothing, electronics, and back to school supplies each year. Back to school time can be a burden on many low income families- especially to those who have to provide clothing for more than one child. Wouldn’t it be great if back to school shopping was easy and cheap? Of course it would.
The recent budget cuts in education tends to take a big toll in the classroom, not only are there more students cramming into already crowded classes, there are fewer supplies to go around. With limited supplies available some teachers and other parents end up spending their own money to buy pencils, pens, notebooks, and textbooks for students whose families can’t afford them.
The Divine Intervention & Prevention Foundation also know as (D.I.P.) is a non-profit organization whose core objective is to educate and empower families to live healthy, holistic lives without the use of violence as a recourse to solve relationship, personal, and financial plights is seeking donations to help kids ages 5-17 gear up for school.
(D.I.P.) has helped over 1,500 families through the Healing Hearts Jax that has lead to the organization’s program expansion and the kickoff of the #Tools4SchoolJax clothing & school supply giveaway to be held on Saturday August 5 at 10am.
