Were you able to join us and bless anyone with a random or intentional act of kindness? I would love to hear from you if you are serving alongside us this summer! I've been hearing a few stories and they absolutely make my day!
*put together a backpack filled with supplies - You can normally find school supply lists by grade/school where school supplies are sold. Choose one and fill a backpack with all the supplies a kiddo will need to have a great start to the school year. You can then drop it off at the school and they will be able to pair it with a student in need.
*ask teacher friends for any needs - Teachers buy LOTS of school supplies for their classrooms. Ask him/her if they have any specific needs and surprise them with a box of goodies before school starts!
*support your local Stuff the Bus campaign - The Junior League in our area does a back to school drive each year. Simply buy a few school supplies and drop them in boxes located around town.
*don't forget older kiddos - It's easy to think about those cute little ones heading to school for the first time but don't forget about the big kids too. Sadly, the older they get the more expensive the needs are. A quick call to the counselor's office at your local middle or high school will allow you to learn the needs that their students may have.
and come back on Wednesday for the Waiting on...Wednesday link-up - a place where you can link up what you are waiting on, going through, making, anything - as long as it's family-friendly! :)
Be sure you check out my FAVORITE link-ups page to see where I'm linking up today. Stop by and show them some love! :)
