Whoooooo can help prepare kids for back to school? YOU CAN!

It's hard to believe this will be the 26th season for Springfield Victory MIssion's annual Back to School event! Over the years, this outreach has blessed more than 57,000 students from homeless or disadvantaged families with clothing and supplies to help them succeed in school....and in life!

During our August 4 distribution day event, these children and the grown-ups who love them are looking forward to a time of fun and excitement as they join us for refreshments, face painting, games and other activities. More importantly, the young scholars will receive the supplies, books and clothes they need as they return to school.

This year we must be prepared to equip up to 2,500 boys and girls and it takes the support of our entire community to make it happen.

For a Back to School scholarship gift of just $35, you'll provide one student with all the basic school supplies required for his or her grade level-things like pens, pencils, crayons, scissors, notebooks and glue.
Each student also receives Scholastic books, gently used clothing from our Victory Vintage Thrift Store and a gift card to K-Mart to purchase other essential items.
As we mark our 26th year of helping Springfield's youngsters go back to school, your Back to School scholarship gift will help Victory Mission love our neighbors by ensuring boys and girls have every opportunity to build bright futures!
Please make a scholarship gift to our Back to School outreach today!
For your convenience
You can also help by organizing a school-supplies drive in your church, workplace or neighborhood, or volunteer to assist with registration, set-up and clean up for our distribution day on August 4.
