2gether for Kids 2017 (Legacy & En Español)
Our SchoolZone Store began out of relationship that Chase Oaks has established with our partner, Mendenhall Elementary. We wanted to provide a place for families with kids in need to shop for their own backpacks and school supplies at an affordable price. Shopping for their own supplies brings dignity to charity and gives ownership back to the families to provide school supplies for their kids.
At SchoolZone, families can purchase all the supplies they will need for the upcoming school year along with a backpack for just $5. This experience would not be possible without the generous donations from Chase Oakers. In previous years, Chase Oakers have donated enough school supplies to provide not only for Mendenhall families, but also for many other local schools and teachers! This year, we have invited children from our partners, Agape Resource Center and Family Promise, to shop at SchoolZone as well.
Join us to make a difference!
