School is now in Session! Children received brand new shoes, uniforms, backpacks, and school supplies for the new school year!
Last week our children started school and what better way to start them off on their first day than with celebrating the new school year! Texas Citizens Bank underwrote the purchase of 230 pairs of children's shoes for the Trees of Hope Shoe Party at Sports Authority! Our children were given the opportunity to choose a new pair of shoes while they had a great time receiving balloon animals and getting their faces painted! This day of fun put smiles on all of our children's faces and they thanked all the volunteers and donors for thinking about them during this Back-to-School season!
[Sara was overjoyed when she told Fox 26 News how happy her mother would be when she saw her brand new shoes, for school!]
Our children not only received brand news shoes, but they were also given a Back-to-School party, where they received brand new backpacks filled with school supplies and uniforms!
[These children's faces lit up when they received brand new backpacks with school supplies and uniforms!]
Thank you to all who donated and helped make a successful start to school possible for our children and teens! Giving to our children in need has been a blessing and your generous donations to Star of Hope are always greatly appreciated!
