One of the most emotional times in a parent’s life is watching their kids go off on their first day of school. Many are filled with emotions of pride and happiness which overwhelm them, and sometimes even a little sadness out of missing their young ones during the day.
Other parents are overcome because they are unable to afford the basic school supplies all kids need while getting their education. Simple things like a backpack, a pack of pencils, and crayons are scarce in the homes of low-income families.
To help fill this need, JK Moving Services has partnered with Apple Federal Credit Union for the second year in a row, to support our local students.
According to AFCU, each fall, thousands of children start the school year without the basic school supplies needed to succeed academically. Their “Collect for Kids” program focuses on providing these essential supplies to kids who are most in need, allowing them to focus on their studies and to build their self-esteem.
JK has participated in the school supply drive just before the start of the new school year to help make sure all kids have the supplies they need before their first day of class. All donations went directly to Loudoun County Public Schools.
