The fall season brings a new school year for children across the country. Most parents get prepared by purchasing school supplies to help their children succeed in school. Unfortunately, many families in our community cannot afford to buy school supplies. It is also a well-known fact that many teachers pay to provide school supplies for kids that are underprivileged. Our team at Skinny IT recognized this issue, and decided we wanted to do something to help.
In August, we hosted a back-to-school supply drive benefiting Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Collin County. CASA of Collin County is a non-profit organization whose mission is to serve as guardians for children who have been removed from abusive or neglectful homes in the Collin County Area. For the past several years, it has also helped underprivileged children in Collin County by providing school supplies at the beginning of the school year.
As a team, we collected and filled a box overflowing with school supplies for the children of CASA. We also made a monetary donation to assist with CASA’s efforts throughout the year.
