We have some fabulous Partners here at Spreading Joy! Without you we would have never been able to provide so much love, support and wonderful supplies for the children of our Back to School Event this year!
We are thankful for the opportunity to Partner with many of you since 2008! That is an accomplishment! It means so much to us that you continue to care for others with us! You inspire us to keep going, you encourage us to keep Spreading Joy! You encourage others!
Your heart for others is huge and so many children benefit from it! Thank you!
Thank you for the hundreds of pencils and pens you provided for children this year!
Thank you for the hundreds of coloring pencils, crayons and glue sticks you provided this year!
Thank you for the notebooks and bags you provided!
More than all of those Basic School Supplies, thank you for the love, joy, hope, kindness, courage, and SMILES you provided this year!
YOU are real Spreading Joy heroes!
You are making a difference in the lives of children who will go on to be Teachers, Firefighters, Police Officers, Doctors, Mechanics, Pilots, etc.
Because of your gifts, your Retweets, your Facebook shares, your product donations we were able to have 4 separate events!
We gave out 200 School bags with just the basic items for kids going back to school this year. As you can see they received the following:
- Entire pack of 8 pencils – (one just is not enough…it would likely get lost before day one)
- Entire pack of pens
- Pack of 24 Crayons
- Pack of 12 Coloring Pencils
- 3 Spiral Notebooks
- Glue Stick
- DrawString Bag to put it in.
We were also able to do 50 Pre-School bags for siblings who were not yet in school with some of the bigger crayons, a coloring book, matching cards, and a stuffed animal. I thought I had a photo of these but I did not. Sorry.
YOU did this! Thank you! It is an honor and a privilege to be Spreading Joy with you!
