Rays of Light Philanthropic just wrapped up our 3rd annual Backpack drive and it was a success! We collected and gave away over 500 brand new supply filled backpacks. These backpacks were filled with various school supplies and were given to foster care, inner city, homeless, and LGBTQ youth in our community.
We would like to say thank you to everyone who donated backpacks and school supplies. Your donations will help these children embark on a path to success for this upcoming school year. Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped us prepare and to those who came out on the day of the event. The success of this event could not have been achieved without you. Your generosity has equipped the children we serve with an opportunity to achieve academic success this school year.
A special thank you to Mike Alvarado and Mike McNeely for providing some wonderful barbecue for the event. We are thankful for the opportunity to express Love is Action by providing tangible goods. We look forward to serving with you again at our CHRISTmas “Be a Blessing” Gala. All donations were distributed to local children in need; primarily the children in the care of Union Rescue Mission and Inner Circle Foster Care.
