Back to School Outreach Photo Gallery

The Heights Foundation/The Heights Center’s annual school supply outreach took place on Saturday, July 24.  The event provided backpacks and school supplies for 500 low-income children living in the Harlem Heights neighborhood.

“Our goal is to ensure that every child in Harlem Heights has the necessary supplies to succeed in school,” said Kathryn Kelly, president, and CEO of The Heights Foundation. “The poverty rate for children in Harlem Heights is more than twice the county average. Many parents cannot provide all the things their students will need. We want to send our students back to school ready to learn.”

Individuals, businesses, and organizations provided supplies.  Participants included:

  • Chase Banks
  • Crown Colony Golf & Country Club Community
  • FP Restoration
  • Hertz Corp.
  • Jennifer’s Boutique
  • One Digital
  • Peace Lutheran Church
  • Re/Max Realty Group
  • RG Architects
  • Royal Shell Real Estate
  • St. Hilary’s Episcopal Church
  • Target
  • Temple Judea
  • The Scotlynn Group
  • Westminster Presbyterian Church
  • Zion Lutheran Church

Thank you to everyone who made our outreach a success including our committed staff and volunteers.  Donations can still be made online by visiting our online giving site or purchasing supplies from our Amazon wish list
