There are about 3,500 children in the Arkansas State Foster Care System at any given time. These children come into state custody through no fault of their own – it is because of abuse, neglect, or some other safety concern in the home. For instance, there are about 7,000 children in foster care in Arkansas within a year, and there are only about 1,100 foster families available to care for those children! Many of these children are placed in group homes! To top those statistics off, the North Little Rock office of DCFS is one of the busiest in the state.

     This year, in lieu of our Back to School Bash, Pinnacle Faith will launch Project: Back to School. Project: Back to School will help to provide foster children with school supplies and uniforms. Every child deserves the best education possible – and having the basic tools is essential to doing well in school. Help us give foster kids the supplies they need to start a successful school year!

     A list of students and or supplies needed will be available by 7-17-15.

How Can You Help???
1. Pray for children in the Arkansas Foster Care System.
2. Donate money by July 31 for supplies to be purchased.
3. Select a child from the list, purchase supplies for child, and bring to Pinnacle Faith by Aug 9.
4. Collect gently used, clean uniforms for children in foster care and bring to Pinnacle Faith by Aug 9.
5. Choose a few items large or small from list to purchase and deliver by Aug 9.
6. Collect larger more expensive items such as calculators, backpacks, etc for high school students.

Thanks in advance for helping Project: Back to School be a huge success!
