Back to School Drive!
Time & Location
About the Event
From July 1st- August 17th, International Child Advancement, will be collecting school supply donations to be distributed on August 24th to refugee children within our community and children at GUAOA Orphanage in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Drop-off locations are:
- Larkin Center of Commerce - Lobby 701 | Seneca St Buffalo, NY 14210
- Salon de Coquette | 484 Connecticut Street Buffalo, NY 14213
- Choco-Logo Confectionery Design | 141 Broadway St, Buffalo NY
- Sasmita Batik Indonesia | 617 Main St Buffalo, NY (in the Market Arcade)
The distribution will take place at Christ is the Answer International Fellowship Church 1272 Delaware Ave, Buffalo NY 14209 on Saturday, August 24, 2019 from 12:00pm-4:30pm. To get the children ready for back to school, they will receive free haircuts, mani-pedis, winter clothing, and school supplies! Children will also be given the opportunity to work together to build lemonade stands, make lemonade, and sell it to the community - as an insight to see what some children in the U.S.A. do to make money. All proceeds raised during the lemonade sale will benefit both the children that sold the lemonade and the children at GUAOA Orphanage in the DRC to help pay for their education.
We will have a meal provided for the children and their families (we are seeking Sponsoring restaurants to donate pizza, fruit, and dessert).
This event is in partnership with Haircuts for Those in Need, The Shift & Crew, United Healthcare Community Plan and Christ is the Answer International Fellowship Church.
