The start of a new school year should be full of promise and excitement for all children. But for foster children who are entering a new school without the supplies they need to succeed, it can be a stressful time.
That’s why 5 A Rent – A – Space is supporting the Sleep Train Foster Kids School Drive this year. With the help of nonprofit foster organization partners, the Sleep Train Foster Kids program takes in donations and disperses them to those children most in need throughout California. Our goal is to collect 100 new school supply items for children of various ages and grade levels, and we need your help!
Donations of backpacks, paper, pens, crayons, pencils, rulers, calculators, dictionaries and more can be dropped off at our Foster City (1221 E. Hillsdale Blvd, Foster City 94404) and Moraga (455 Moraga Rd., Ste. F, Moraga, 94556) locations from 7/1/15 through 8/19/15. We will take all donations to local Sleep Trains to be dispersed to school aged children in our communities.
You can also make a donation online https://www.sleeptrainfosterkids.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donate.general, and the shopping will be done on your behalf.
We thank you for your support!
