Back to School Supply Drive

The 2016 school year has officially ended and summer is here… Children are so excited about riding bikes, going to summer BBQs and graduation parties with their friends, spending a day at the beach, attending summer camp, and going on family vacations. With all that summer fun who wants to think about going back to school? Child Link does!

With over 300 children in our foster care programs, we know how important it is for children to be prepared for their first day of school. We want to make sure that every child is equipped with the recommended supplies that will enable them to perform well throughout the upcoming school year.
