Backpack Drive 2014

backpackdrive_2We had such an amazing back-to-school day as part of last year’s National Health Center Week festivities! We are excited to celebrate the new school year again with our sweet patients and their kids in need.

This year we will have two back-to-school days–Monday August 11th we will be providing back-to-school physicals and on Tuesday August 12th our dental team will be administering dental check-ups for the children.

On both days we will be distributing back-packs full of school supplies! These backpacks will be given directly to the homeless and uninsured children that we see here at our health center, Orange Blossom Family Health.

The goal here is to fully prepare the kids for an awesome start to their school year! We’ll handle the medical and dental needs, but we need community support to get those backpacks ready!

Below is the list of school supplies we’re hoping to gather. The goal is to gather fifty bags and we need your help!
