Community outreach program A Child’s Dream will be holding their annual Back to School Give-Away this Saturday August 18. A Child’s Dream serves children who live within the Culver City Real Estate area.
Martin Feinberg, Realtor, noted that the mission of A Child’s Dream is focused on “Helping to meet essential needs through practical means; one man, one household, one street, one community at a time.”
According to a press release concerning the Back to School event:
“We are preparing to provide backpacks, school supplies, windbreakers, socks, personal hygiene products and more to for 800+ underserved school-age children from Pre-K to 12th grade. In addition to the Back to School supplies, we also host an amazing Resource Fare; providing families with connections they may not otherwise seek out. Our Resource Fare ranges from information on healthy-eating, dental care, reading and overall wellness.
“Hundreds of under-served children look forward to receiving new items for school. A smile of a child is priceless; seeing a sign of relief from the parents when their children are given school supplies and hygiene items is as compelling.”
Cassandra Steptoe-Sampson, Founder and CEO of A Child’s Dream-CA stated, “At our Annual Back to School Outreach, we firmly believe in getting families a hand-up and not a hand-out. Every child’s dream is to be loved, protected and cares for. It is our responsible to let parents know that they are not alone in providing the essential needs of their children; we are here as their partners.”
The A Child’s Dream Back to School Give-Away will take place on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Culver City Teen Center located at 4158 South Overland Ave. in Culver City. School supplies will be available for the first 800 children so plan accordingly.
