John Thiessen Back To School Program

John Thiessen started his organization here on Long Island years ago. It started as a Toy Drive to provide sick and needy children with toys and even clothes.

He also has a Back To School program in order to provide children with school supplies and clothes. This will help underprivileged children from low-income families. It starts at Kindergarten through High School.

Items always needed are socks, underwear, shirts, pants and new shoe and sneakers. Children have the right to attend school and to also feel good about themselves. John says that statistics show many children to not attend the first day of school because they are embarrassed that they do not have new clothes and school supplies.

Distribution takes place in late August right through early September before their first day of school.

Please help put a smile on these childrens' faces! Thank you and enjoy your Summer!

Jackie:  I remember the days of going to Sears with Mom for my back to school clothes.  It was very exciting.  This sounds like a great program for the kids in your area.

The Back To School program sounds like a fantastic program and I know that we have a few similar here in my area!  Great highlights and I hope there are massive contributions!
