Through the years, Mrs. Sanders has had some ups and some downs. But through it all, Bread for the City has been there. “Bread for the City has become the one place that I can rely on,” she says.

Back to School Made a Lot Easier!

At Bread, we know that back to school time can bring a lot of stress for parents, with all of the additional expenses of school supplies, new clothes, shoes, etc. So, in stepped in one of our amazing donors to lighten this burden, by not only donating a number of book bags, but school supplies as well!

Catherine Kello has been a fabulous, Bread for the City donor over the years, regularly donating school supplies right when they are needed most.school suppliesbook bags

This year, with her generous donation, we have packed 20 brand new book bags, inside of which are an assortment of school supplies, from notebooks and rulers to crayons and glue.

Throughout this week, clients can enter their names at the front desk of both of our centers for a chance to win one of the book bags.

On Friday, August 14th, 10 names will be drawn at each center and those winners will receive the goodie-filled book bags!

Winners will then have a week after being contacted to pick up their bags. With the start of DC public schools right around the corner, this raffle is just in time to help out our clients and their families.

Thank you, Catherine!
