Every year around this time I help out with the Adopt-a-Child program.
Our Back To School Program helps to bring back the excitement of the first day of school for many needy children. School personnel from nearby school districts nominate needy students to receive a set of clothing and school supplies for the coming school year. Through the generosity of many caring donors from the community, children are provided those supplies so that they may enjoy that first day of school.Normally I take the day off, but this year I helped out after work. It's a bit labor intensive, but we get volunteers that help us set up (9 of which were family, not that we get much choice). :D This little lady was just about the youngest one there.
