We are in the throes of summer and everything is nice and relaxing! But we all know what is lurking around the corner; it is there in the back of our mind. Some might be excited about it while some dread it. Some might even be shocked to see it already! But there is nothing we can do to stop the end of summer and start up the new school year (trust me, I tried for years!). However, no matter what your opinion on the matter is, one thing is for sure: School supplies are expensive! This can be a huge burden for many families here in the Cincinnati area.
This is where we come in with our July 2013 charity of the month!
We have a 20’ truck to fill with school supplies! The Frame USA family has the ability to help children succeed by making sure that they have the supplies they need for school. That is why Fill The Truck goes Back to School! Just like our December program where we collect different goods to fill a truck and deliver to a local charity before Christmas, we are collecting school supplies and summer clothing for children going back to school. Everything that we collect this summer will go to Valley Interfaith Food and Clothing Center’s Back to School program, where they handed out over 500 book bags last year.
Frame USA has already committed to donating 100 book bags this year! However, that is not enough to help Valley Interfaith take care of all their families. We need your help too! Without you, we will not fill the truck! The brand new items we are collecting are: dry erase markers, tissue boxes, paper towels, two pocket folders, zippered pencil pouches, highlighters, backpacks, binders, composition books, single subject notebooks, pencils, wide ruled loose leaf paper, pens, glue, markers, crayons, colored pencils, shoes, t-shirts, shorts, and socks.
There are many ways you can help:
1) Spread the word! Post about FTT on Facebook, Linkedin, Youtube, Twitter, ect.
2) Check out the website. www.fillthetruck.org
3) Drop off items at Frame USA. 225 Northland Blvd, Cincinnati, OH 45246

5) Donate cash. www.fillthetruck.org
6) Buy something from Frameusa.com *We are still donating $1 for every order placed online! (Will you match our donation?)
We are including our Retail store in the action too! Every Custom Framing order that is placed in July will be worth $1 from Frame USA as well!
We have a 20 foot truck that we need to fill. We need your help! Please consider donating, and change the future for the children.
