Echo Hanson  HYDE PARK, NY
We are DCC students in Poughkeepsie New York, we are part of a group called ECCEL (Elenor Roosevelt Community College Emerging Leaders) as part of our involvement we are charged with a community outreach project, so here it is. 
We are hoping to aquire and fill 120 backpacks with toiletries, school supplies, vitmins, books, food/snacks, certificates to restaurants/grocery stores. It is our goal to assist an entire 5th grade class of Kreiger Elementary go from elementry school to Jr. High with as little worry as possible. These kids sometimes don't have shampoo or deoderant, they're not sure they will eat well all summer or if they will have school supplies for the next year, they aren't gueranteed access to the summer reading books they are required to read. It is our goal to provide these kids with the essentials to set them up for success as they enter Jr. High, eventually high school, college and society. We believe if we give them a leg up now, it will help them eccel in their future.
All donations will be used to stock backpacks! We need as much money as possible by May 2017 so we can hand out backpacks that will be essential for summer success and seamless entry into a whole new acedemic setting.
With your help we can help ensure a bright future for these kids who have SO MUCH to offer!
Thank You!
