The back-to-School countdown has officially begun… and Chicas Latinas de Sacramento is working hard to provide EVERY child at our sponsored elementary school with a new pair of shoes for the 2018-19 school year. Only ONE MONTH LEFT TO DONATE to 2018 “Starting Off on the Right Foot” Shoe Drive, benefiting D.W. Babcock School!!!
We’re halfway to our goal of collecting 600 NEW pairs of shoes!
Kicking-butt is a community effort ~ Help Spread the Word and/or Donate
Why we do what we do…
“When I first learned of our 2018 sponsored school, my stomach dropped. The selected school fit our criteria and was deserving of our sponsorship and support, but there was something my board members didn’t know — D.W. Babcock was my elementary school. Chicas Latinas’ board and committee members justified their selection by sharing stats and painting the portrait of a school and children in need of community support… and I found myself transported back to a time when I was a child, in need of support, and feeling incredibly small because of it. Needless to say, this year’s selection hit close to home. That was my school, and I was that kid.” – Read more: http://bit.ly/ShoeDriveNewHope
