At the time, individual back-to-school events were providing supplies for students every year but the lack of resources and planning were creating difficulties for the organizers. Noticing this fact, a catholic charity worker came up with the idea to pull together all the resources each individual organizers had and buy supplies in bulk to increase efficiency. With the belief that education is the key solution to ending the poverty cycle, the organizers eventually opened their first event to the public in 2005.

Stevens said it is possible, with time and money.
Additionally, it represents the myriad practices I have went to throughout the years. It represents my teammates that I got to play with sometimes for ten years while others only a year.

So, after an agonizing twenty minutes of receiving compliments by strangers about completing the pretest after five minutes and having the teacher call me to the front to demonstrate long division, while she went to have a conversation with the principal about what to do with me, they decided to put me in a class that had both fourth and fifth graders. Right now, I was
They accept kids of any religion as long as they are American citizens and their families are on low income. Unfortunately, the school gets more applications a year than they can accept. The students that attend the school lice in one of the 133 houses on campus with others their age. Their “house parents” give them a comfortable homelife.
