Back to School 2015

Back_to_schoolIt’s that time of year again!
While the kids are busy enjoying their summer, you’re already thinking about how to prepare them for going back to school this Fall. For hard-working families with low-incomes, this can be an especially stressful time.

Rollo’s Kids Foundation would like to lend a helping hand to the hard-working families of the Coastal Bend by providing backpacks and school supplies to families that qualify for our program. Depending on funding, vouchers for clothes and shoes may also be provided.

If you think you make too much for government assistance but too little to make ends meet, this is exactly the program for you!

We have extended our application submittal process for the 2nd Annual Rollo’s Back to School program, which will take place on Saturday, August 22, 2015. To be considered, please review the eligibility and application requirements on our application page.

School Supply Fundraiser Canceled

Dear Supporters,

Rollo’s Kids Foundation would like to thank you sincerely for your generous donations and/or support of our organization. Unfortunately, due to a lack of sufficient corporate sponsorships, we are unable to fund our School Supply Supper and Silent Auction event, scheduled on July 26, and are therefore, canceling the fundraiser.

We will continue our efforts to provide the kids of hard-working, low-earning families of Corpus Christi with school supplies, clothes and shoes for this upcoming school year through various partnerships and small fundraisers throughout the summer and we hope that you will continue to join us in this effort, as your support is so evidently needed.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely,

Rollo’s Kids Foundation Board Members
