It may feel like summer’s just begun, but before you know it the carpool parents will be lining up to take students off to school. Unfortunately, those school shopping lists only seem to be getting longer and some local students’ families don’t have the means to get everything they need to succeed. Help us make sure that these children have a great start to their academic year by donating a backpack and/or school supplies right here at The Jewelry Box of Lake Forest.
It gives us so much joy knowing that we’ve helped local students in need and we want to spread that joy even further. That’s why we’re giving you 20% off your next jewelry or watch repair when you make a donation.
What We’re Collecting
We’re accepting donations of any and all school supplies students ranging from kindergarten to 12th-grade need for their studies, including:
- Index cards
- & More!
How Your Donation Helps
Did you know that over 100,000 children are affected by poverty every day in Orange County? When budgets are tight, food, shelter, and other necessities are the highest priorities, meaning without your donations, these students would go without the supplies they need to thrive in the classroom. South County Outreach, our partners in this initiative, is aiming to gather at least 1,300 backpacks, along with supplies with which to fill them. Even the smallest donation can make a huge impact, setting them up for success for this school year and helping them build a solid foundation for their futures.
We’re collecting school supply donations now through August 18th, when we’ll hand the supplies over to South County Outreach. They’ll take it from there, getting your donations to kids in need in the Saddleback Valley Unified School District, which includes 24 elementary schools, 5 middle schools and 7 high schools. While there are students in need at all ages, the kindergarten through 3rd grade group is where your donations are needed most.
The Orange County community is incredibly giving, especially when it comes to supporting our friends and neighbors, so we know you can help us give back even more than last year!
Help the Students AND Your Sparkle
As a special thank you for your generosity, we’re giving you 20% off your next jewelry or watch repair when you make a donation. Now’s your chance to bring that broken, bent, or ill-fitting jewelry or watch back to life AND to improve the life of a student in need. We can’t think of a better win-win than that!
