Building Self-Esteem in Each Child

Unlike any other program in the region, Running Start provides children with the opportunity to shop for brand new clothes to begin the school year. Thanks to the support of caring Annual Campaign donors, 800 children receive a backpack full of the school supplies they need, new clothes and sneakers. For some, these are the first new clothes they have called their own. The confidence this gives each child is priceless.

Help us provide more students with a successful start to the school year and donate towards our Running Start program today!
