Welcome to HoG's 2020 Annual Backpack Giveaway Fundraiser!

 

As a result of COVID, we were unable to do our traditional fundraising Run/Walk, in support of our Annual Backpack Giveaway... so we got creative and are doing a book sale!  Thankfully, due to the generous donation of 600 books titled Sela Blue and the First Day of School, by author Alisia Dale, we, with your support, will be able to provide our Hearts of Gold kids with something extra special this year. All proceeds generated will fund a backpack filled with grade appropriate school supplies along with the gift of a copy of Sela Blue and the First Day of School to a child living in a homeless shelter.As usual, our HoG kids are counting on us to provide them with their necessary school supplies and with your generous support, together, we will once again, not let them down!  THANK YOU!

Enjoy our virtual reading of Sela Blue and the First Day of School by some very talented, well-known members of our HoG family!
