More Than a Backpack
In cooperation with RISD and the community of Rusk, Tree of Promise is proud to present 'More than a Backpack'.
This effort assists students to start the school year off right! Our goal is to supply 500 children, grades PreK - 8, with a new backpack and school supplies.
This year we have partnered with local businesses to sponsor school supplies for 500 students. The response from these businesses has been overwhelming! We live in a community that wants to see kids succeed. Your part in More than a Backpack can be to sponsor backpacks. Brookshire Bros is helping by stocking our backpacks in store and providing a drop box for their collection.
August 2, 2016 (Time TBA) we will be having a Back to School Fair at the Singletary Memorial Library where families can, free of charge, receive backpacks and supplies. We will also have the Lion's club set up to do eye exams and back-to-school haircuts will be available.
