Caring & Sharing Helps With Back To School
Mark Twain Elementary School was a hub of activity on Wednesday and Thursday
evening, July 23 and 24, as Westerville Caring & Sharing volunteers gathered to
fill dozens of book bags with donated school supplies and personal hygiene
organization’s annual Back to School project helps
hundreds of Westerville students each year. If funds are
available, they also provide gift cards to qualifying
families. Their goal is to help pupils begin each school
year with confidence and a positive attitude.
Sharing, a 501(c)3 non-profit group, assists students
who receive free or reduced lunch through the
Westerville City School District. Many of the families
who are eligible for services have suffered job losses
or layoffs, have been injured, have become ill, are
single parent households, or have two parents working at
low wages. The organization’s two main projects each
year are Back to School and the Christmas distribution
program. Volunteers raise funds necessary to cover all
administrative expenses, which is how Caring & Sharing
is able to assure that 100% of all donations benefit
Westerville families. Learn how to donate or volunteer
