Last Chance to Support School Kids in Need

Hundreds of Alameda’s low-income students need your support, according to the Alameda Education Foundation.

With your help, AEF’s program, “Equipped 4 Success,” will distribute 800 backpacks and supplies to these students before the start of the school year.

If you have not yet donated, go online to find several ways of supporting Alameda students in need.

1. Make a donation of $10, $20 or $30 and receive 25% – 50% off from some of Alameda’s favorite restaurants and wineries.

2. Make a tax-deductible donation here or mail a check to the Alameda Education Foundation, P.O. Box 1363, Alameda, CA 94501.

3. Make an in-kind donation of school supplies.

“Equipped 4 Success” is supported by the Alameda Education Foundation, the Alameda Unified School District, the Alameda Point Collaborative, the Alameda Boys & Girls Club, and the Alameda Collaborative for Children, Youth and Families.

The program’s goal is to fill 800 backpacks for low-income students served by Alameda Unified School District’s McKinney-Vento program for homeless families, the Alameda Point Collaborative, and the Alameda Boys and Girls Club.
