Imagine having to choose between buying food and clothes or a backpack, crayons, and scissors for your school-age child! Each year, many parents look at the brightly colored “Back to School” banners with dread as they face exactly these choices. The average cost of school supplies per child has grown to almost $75 per child. The cost is beyond many parents who are already struggling to pay for rent, gas, and medical expenses!
The Little Red Schoolhouse Project (www.redschool.org) was founded in response to this need. Their goal is to see every child start school with basic school supplies and a backpack.
Who is involved? The Little Red Schoolhouse Project Committee is a joint effort of local social service agencies, churches, businesses, and individuals. The Little Red Schoolhouse Project is a project of Family Education and Support Services.
