The Village Surrounds Children Raised by Relatives!
Thanks to a collaborative partnership between our community and Social Services’ Relatives as Parents Program “RAPP”, assisted over 162 children who live with their grandparents and other relatives
as they prepared for the 2009-2010 school year!
RAPP’s 4th Annual School Supply drive surpassed expectations and represents generous support from over 40 community groups, organizations & individual donors.
Thanks to generous community sponsors, RAPP provided school supplies and when needed, supplemented with gift cards for more expensive items. Children were provided everything from book bags, standard paper, pencils, clothing, shoes, to hand sanitizer that will help prevent unnecessary school absences!
Social Services Relatives as Parents Program “RAPP” expresses our sincere appreciation to all who organized school supply drives with groups they are affiliated with and those that gave resources to make a difference in the lives of children in our community. Special thanks to the individuals who coordinated the projects at their individual locations! Generous community sponsorship is vital in serving our RAPP families!
