Woohoo...Summer Break is HERE!
It's that time of year again! Kids are celebrating across the Verde Valley. Yet, at the Old Town Mission we are already planning for going BACK TO SCHOOL and we need your HELP!
Operation: Back to School is just around the corner, and we at the Old Town Mission are thrilled to once again provide this amazing community event for families struggling to make ends meet. For over 15 years, we've been providing NEW backpacks and school supplies
for local children, ensuring that they have all the tools they need to succeed in the upcoming school year.
Last year, we were privileged to meet Amber, a single mother of two adorable kids, she had recently moved back home to Cottonwood to care for her mother. Amber first came to our food pantry in June to shop for groceries, fresh fruits and veggies... her kids discovered the Kids' Shop they filled their little cart with clothes, toys and a game to play with their mom.
When Operation: Back to School rolled around Amber was the first to sign up to volunteer with us and give back to her community. Her kids spent the day passing out backpacks and even had time to pick out one for themselves.
At the Old Town Mission, we strive to be a godsend for families in the Verde Valley, with your support, we can continue to make a difference in the lives of those in need. Your donation today can put a smile on a child's face and help them to start the school year off right.
Thank you for your generosity!
