Help Send Boysville Kids Back to School with Confidence!
Remember shopping for new clothes to go back to school? We want to send our children back to school in style and need your help. We care for over 120 children each day and each one has their own individual style. From the hipster to the artist, we want our children to be able to express themselves. That is why we are asking for gift cards so our children can choose the clothes they want (within reason of course!)
Now through August 10, 2018, Boysville is asking for donations of money or gift cards to popular retailers such as Wal-Mart, Target, Academy, Ross, Old Navy, DSW, Rack Room and more will benefit our children. Each child gets to shop for their own clothes during their annual back to school shopping trip.
“I feel like it is important for our children to have the same styles as their peers when it comes to back to school clothes. This will allow our children to start school feeling good about themselves and reduce targeting from bullies at their schools.” – Paula Tucker, CEO at Boysville.
Donations of gift cards can be brought or mailed to our campus at 8555 East Loop 1604 North, Converse, TX 78109. Monetary donations are also appreciated and can be designated to Back to School Clothing. Click here for a list of school supplies needed: School Supplies 2018.
