News: Back to School Fundraiser

Family Time

This year, Love Little Children, Inc. had a successful back-to-school program to help little ones to be “school ready” in our community.

There is a great need in Sacramento City and Twin Rivers Unified School Districts. Thank you for joining us in this effort of equipping one child at a time in their journey to the world of knowledge. We were able to donate 30 backpacks full of school supplies to children who are dealing with very difficult circumstances to include poverty and homelessness. We received several letters from the school districts thanking us for our generous contribution.

If you would like to continue helping these children, and others, here's how you can help:

The cost of gifting one (1) child with a backpack full of needed supplies:  $30.00

The cost of gifting one (1) child with a school uniform:  $50.00

The cost of gifting five (5) children with backpacks full of needed supplies:  $150.00

The cost of gifting five (5) children with a school uniform:  $250.00

Here is a great opportunity for all of us, together, to make a difference in our communities. Thank you for investing into a child’s future.

You can make your donation on our website by selecting the “Donate” tab, or via mail at:

Love Little Children, Inc.
