We are trying to provide disadvantaged children living in Clovis Unified with backpacks we have three basic programs to achieve this goal
Care Bags go to children who have been displaced due to neglect, abuse, abandonment. We will be giving these bags to shelters, county offices, resource centers, foster parent agencies, police stations and schools. Bags may also go to families with very limited resources. Through donations, CCN Clovis is able to support the mental well being and comfort of children during a stressful time in their lives.
CCN School Backpacks will provide backpacks filled with school supplies to disadvantaged children. Many low income families are already struggling and unfortunately cannot afford to buy the school supplies their children need.
CCN Food backpacks are a unique effort to meet the needs of hungry, food-insecure school children in the Clovis Unified School District. This program is a community effort to ensure that those students and their families who need food have access to nutritious and easy-to-prepare meals. Our Volunteers, will collect and pack a variety of meals in backpacks to be distributed to children and their families identified by the school district as needing our support.
With support from community members like you along with our corporate sponsors including 1Team4God, we are able to continue to meet the needs of students in the Clovis Unified School District. Studies have shown that when children’s basic needs are being met, through the kindness of donors such as yourselves, they learn better, are better focused, and even grow up to give back to their communities. 80% of all donations are utilized to purchase food items for the backpacks. Only 20% or less of the funds collected are used for administration in direct support of CCN-Clovis. All other activities are supported by volunteers from the community including our Executive Board and those filling up the backpacks.
