Back to School Drive Helps Get Members Ready For School

It’s important for kids to start the year off right, equipped with the necessary supplies for academic success.  Shopping trips for new clothing and school supplies are a fun yearly ritual for some, but it’s a stressful time for many of our families who struggle to make ends meet.  Fortunately, our families won’t have that added stress and our kids will be equipped for the new school year at school, home and at the club.

Over 50 organizations combined their time and efforts to support this year’s back 2 school drive.  Our members received over $100,000 worth of school supplies and backpacks as well as haircuts, complete outfits, meals, volunteer time and a lot of love. One Reitman club member looked in a backpack and said “this is everything I need for school”.
