In August, Macon Program for Progress will transition 64 Head Start children into area kindergarten classrooms. The MPP Back to School Angels program will provide these children with a new backpack filled with school supplies. This year their siblings will also receive assistance, as sponsorships and donations allow. If you are an individual, a business, or a community group looking for a summer venture, the Back to School Angels committee wants to hear from you. You can make a tax-deductible donation, set up a Back to School Angels campaign at your business and collect school supplies or donate a filled backpack appropriate for a child age kindergarten up to fifth grade. Back to School Angels provides each Head Start child a free backpack, pencils and erasers, safety scissors, 24-pack crayons, glue sticks, colored markers, two-pocket folder, pencil box, beginning writing pad, and large bath/beach (nap) towel, hand-sanitizer, etc. Sibling will receive a backpack and assorted age-appropriate supplies. Deadline for all donations is Monday, July 19, at 5 p.m. If you would like to be a sponsor, contact Tabitha Rhinehart at (828)524-4471.
