A Child's School Supplies
$20 can fill a backpack with school supplies for a refugee child about to start his or her first day of class at their new school in an American city. Taking those first few steps into a classroom filled with unfamiliar faces is difficult for any student. It’s much harder when that child is a newly arrived refugee trying to navigate daily life in the United States. We help children settle into their new schools with caring guidance and support, including backpacks full of supplies that help them feel ready to begin that big first day of school.
