Back 2 School Campaign

At CRN—we believe education is the key to breaking the cycle of homelessness.

Before school starts in the fall, CRN joins with community partners to collect school supplies for homeless children living in Metro Atlanta. Each year, our goal is to ensure that all of the children we serve arrive on their first day of class prepared and feeling like their most confident selves. Our Back 2 School Campaign not only provides homeless children with the critical supplies they need for school, but also offers them something even more valuable: a chance to succeed.

Goal for Back 2 School 2019:

new and filled book bags.

How You Can Help:

Conduct a Back 2 School drive for your office, neighborhood, church, social or civic organization. 

Stuff The Bus

CRN partners with WSB-TV, Channel 2 for our annual “Stuff the Bus” promotion day. Each year in July, six school buses are placed at different locations across Metro Atlanta to serve as public drop-off sites. People from throughout the community come out to donate new school supplies and book bags—helping us stuff each bus to the ceiling! 

This July our goal is to provide over 6,800 homeless children with new and filled book bags. This is our biggest goal yet and with the help of our incredible community, we believe we can achieve it! We hope to see you out there stuffing the bus this year!

Details about specific locations will be announced in June 2019.

Day of Readiness

To cap off the campaign, CRN holds its Day of Readiness in the Community Center at East Roswell Park, 9000 Fouts Road in Roswell, Georgia (Directions: CLICK HERE). Volunteers are needed from noon–7:00 PM. We invite all of the children we serve to join us for this stress-free day of fun where we provide free health screening, dental exams, haircuts, a huge buffet of food, numerous fun-filled activities, and of course, their new and filled book bags.
