Thank you to 'Shoes and Clothes for Kids'!
For the third year in a row, Shoes and Clothes for Kids provided approximately 100 bookbags filled with school supplies to the children at Lakeshore Beach Apartment.
There were many excited children that day as they lined up to choose their favorite color bookbag. The bookbags were full of supplies to help the children start the school year off right. Northeast Shores donated supplies to supplement what Shoes and Clothes for Kids provided. The supplies from Northeast Shores were also geared towards the moms who were returning to school, starting school or going to get their GED’s. One mother who brought her children for supplies had just received her GED. When she announced it to us that day, there were many hugs and congratulations given to her. What an exciting day!
The children and their parents would like to thank Valerie McCormack, Executive Director of Shoes and Clothes for Kids profusely for the donation of bookbags loaded with supplies. Many parents were overheard saying what a big help it was to receive the bookbags and supplies.
We would also like to thank Debra Brassler, a retired school teacher, who has made a generous donation to help get a reading/mentoring/tutoring program started for the children in the complex.
If you would like to volunteer your time to help children read, please call Denise Lorek at 216-481-7660 for more details.
