For Kids works to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty for families and children in the Hampton Roads area. In May of 1988, they provided emergency shelter to families that need it and have since grown to distribute a wide array of programs. Within 14 cities and counties in Southeastern Virginia, they are one of the largest homeless services in the state. All of their efforts push their clients to achieve family stability and lifetime success for their children.
They hold several drives each year. Our Valley Drive team in Norfolk, Virginia, donated to their annual Back-To-School Supply Drive. Last year, this drive collected enough to send 755 children back to school with everything needed. Now that our kids and going back to the classroom, it is more important than ever! If you would like to contribute with your donation, they are collecting through August 25. Their drop-off locations are in Chesapeake at 1001 Poindexter Street and in Suffolk at 119 W. Constance Road. They also have an Amazon wish list for your convenience. Visit HERE for a complete list of desired items and more details on their drive.
