Back to School Drive
Community Connections partnered with HandUp to become their first East Coast partnership for our second Annual Supplies for Success Campaign, Back to School Drive. HandUp is a Technology Company with a social justice focus.
For more than 32 years, Community Connections has served the marginalized and underserved is the District of Columbia. Community Connections, along with the technology expertise of HandUp set the goal to raise $5,000 for the 750 children we serve. Community Connections was able to raise $6,840 through our Supplies for Success Campaign. With these funds, we were able to distribute 191 backpacks and provide 76 uniforms to the families and children that we serve. We thank all our supporters who took the time to donate and drop off supplies. We look forward to our next campaign and finding ways to serve our consumers.
