Back to School 2014

Dear Friends,

We hope you’re enjoying the summer! Guardian Angel Settlement Association is already planning for the 18th Annual Back-to-School Program to be held on Saturday, August 9, 2014 at Peabody Elementary School.

We all know how important proper school supplies are to educational success. Having items like papers, pencils, notebooks and backpacks give children the confidence and tools to apply what they learn in the classroom. For families that cannot afford the cost of quality school supplies, the Guardian Angel Back-to-School Program is a heaven sent.

Your donations will provide high-quality backpacks, school supplies and a new pair of shoes to every low-to-moderate income elementary, middle and high school student who participates in the program. In 2013, the Program served over 900 children!

As always, Guardian Angel collaborates with neighborhood organizations to rally the community around educational success and serve as many children as possible.
