Remember those first day of school jitters? Picking out an outfit, wondering who is in your class, setting up your desk? For many Denver children, the first day is filled with anxiety and dread because they don't have fresh clothes and they don't have supplies. We want as many kids as possible to enter the new school year set-up for success. Every year, with the support of the community, RMA is able to take 100 kids shopping for new school clothes and provide a new backpack with all the supplies they will need for the upcoming school year.
Thanks to contributions from local businesses, members, sponsors, friends and family, we have been able to cover all the back to school needs for 100 kids every year for the past 10 years!
On July 31st, we are hosting our annual Back-to-School Shopping event at Walmart in Central Park. We would like to expand our impact and can't do it without your help! Please follow the link below to donate today.
