School Is Cool deadline today

August 2, 2010

Back-to-school season is upon us. Soon thousands of K-12 students in Fort Collins will be heading back to their elementary, middle, and high schools anxiously awaiting what new things lie ahead. For some kids that anxiousness is doubled by the fact that they can't afford basic school supplies.

Ease the burden

School Is Cool strives to ease that burden for these students in the Poudre School District. This year, our goal is to deliver 2,500 backpacks full of grade-specific supplies to area schools. The schools in turn will make sure the children who need the help, get it. But, we need your help to reach this goal!

The deadline for monetary donations to this year’s campaign is today, Monday, Aug. 2, although donations will be accepted year-round.  All gifts to the School is Cool program make a difference. A $20 donation, for instance, provides one backpack to a local child in need.
