Back Pack Extravaganza Day

Together we did it!  We made this a Summer of Hope for 150 kids and absolutely no doubt couldn't have done it without you! All summer long you made smiles either from the time you dedicate, the camp flip-flops you gave, or the money you donated.  You made 2011 summer, a summer full of Hope up until the very end...the "Back Pack Extravaganza Day."

Being my first "Back Pack Extravaganza Day" I expected something low key like kids forming a line according to age and picking up a back pack.  I was completely wrong.  It felt like a sacred ceremony including prayers, songs, a motivational speech, and many blessings. The kids were called individually on stage to get their back pack and as soon as they received it you could see joy, pride, and curiosity. They wanted to look inside and see what the heck was in their new present a stranger gave them! Star of Hope, on behalf of all the donors and EIS Office Solutions, was able to present all kids with pride in the form of new school supplies and uniforms. We are deeply grateful!
