For most kids, the first day of school is full of excitement. But for foster and homeless children, the first day of school can bring feelings of fear and uncertainty:
“Who will I sit with at lunch?”
“I hope they don’t notice my old clothes.”
“Will they invite me to play at recess?”
“How do I explain where I live?”
Won’t you help us give them the tools they need to succeed this year?
Your support will help foster and homeless children served by Eckerd Connects’ Raising Hope in Pinellas, Pasco, Hillsborough and Brevard counties.
