***Disclosure: I participated in a campaign for the Back to School Supply Drive Game on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Boys & Girls Clubs of America. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.***
Here in Ohio, school starts on August 26th. Just a couple of weeks away! My 8th grader is not to thrilled that summer is coming to a close, but he is eager to get back to class and see his friends. I am glad he has a positive attitude about school. Now that we're no longer in Virginia, where he was bullied relentlessly, he has actually started looking forward to learning.
I am busy preparing for the start of the school year, too. I have already purchased most of Kyle's school supplies, and I only have a few more things I need to grab. We're a one income household, so to help keep costs from hurting our wallet, I do a lot of shopping throughout the year. I pick up basics like paper, notebooks, pens and pencils whenever I notice a good sale, and I simply put them aside for the next school year. This really does help offset the costs when back to school season is upon us!
Did you know that each year, 1 million students fail to graduate high school? This scary statistic, proves it is increasingly important to support today’s youth. This Back-to-School season, BGCA and long-time partner Disney have launched an online supply drive. By simply playing a pop-quiz style game, you can help donate school supplies to local BGCA Clubs. For every five correct answers, a donation of supplies will be made!
You can check out the Boys & Girls Club of America and Disney School Supply Drive Game HERE. Not only is it a fun game, your smarts will help make sure school supplies go to kids who need them.
Also, be sure to check out the Boys & Girls Club of America website to see the many ways this organization helps kids in need. They offer so many great programs to keep kids on the right track. They also have loads of information for parents as they prepare to send their children back to school.
Do you have a Boys & Girls Club of America chapter near you? Have you checked them out to see what they've got to offer? I'd love to hear all about it!
