Fill a Backpack and Ensure a Child’s Future
Worcester County G.O.L.D. (Giving Other Lives Dignity), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is seeking donors and sponsors for their upcoming School Supplies for Students program. The program provides backpacks filled with school supplies to K-12 students in Worcester County who, financially, would have a difficult time getting the supplies.
Many students have begun, or will soon begin, the transition from virtual learning to in-person learning. By providing backpacks filled with grade appropriate supplies, GOLD is seeking to make the transition easier and less stressful on families and students in need. Last year, GOLD provided filled backpacks to 288 students and are anticipating a greater need this year with students returning to school. You can help a child in need by sponsoring a student or by making a donation. For more information visit www.WorcesterGOLD.org.
The deadline for donations and sponsorships is August 27th. Making an investment in a child’s education is making an investment in their future. Contact GOLD with any questions on how to contribute to the School Supplies for Students program.
