Group Collects School Supplies For Homeless Kids
Some families, however, are going through difficult times and won't be able to afford any supplies this year. But thanks to the Community Partnership for Homeless, their kids will get the supplies they need and you can help.
"It's like sometimes you feel you are in the world by yourself," said Latasha Phillips.
Phillips, who lost her job, is homeless with her four children.
"You have to get rulers and special stuff for projects," said Phillips. "It's kind of hard when you don't have it."
Hoping to help people like Phillips, the Community Partnership for Homeless has set up two sites where people can make donations. They're hoping they can collect enough to help out two hundred kids.
"When you see the faces on the children, when they get their back packs and their uniforms and their school supplies they are so excited," said Patricia Vila with the Community Partnership for Homeless.
One of the children the donations will help is Phillip's five year old daughter Katara who will be starting fifth grade next year.
"We need pencils, stuff for projects, homework folders," said Katara
If you would like to help, you can stop by one of the Community Partnership for Homeless' two collection sites – one in Downtown Miami and the other in Homestead.
The agency needs the following items:
- A variety of school supplies including pencils, crayons, rulers, notebooks and folders
- School uniforms including shirts, polo shirts, pants, shorts, white shirts, khaki or navy blue pants, shorts or skirs.
- Socks and shoes
