Back 2 School 2019

Back 2 School 2019

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.

What's New

Children’s Restoration Network (CRN) is thrilled to announce some exciting changes in our 2019 Back 2 School Campaign. This year, we will be conducting a rolling campaign throughout the entire month of July. Our new strategy moves us in the direction of an interactive virtual campaign, boosting our efficiency and expanding our outreach to help even more children. By pulling all of the community’s resources together, we will increase our buying power and help your dollars go further than ever before!

The majority of the children we work with arrive at a group home or shelter with barely more than the clothes on their backs, much less with the supplies they need to succeed in school. Our goal is to ensure that all of the children we work with arrive on their first day of class prepared and feeling like their most confident selves. We are excited to launch this campaign into the modern era and look forward to working collaboratively with you on this journey to find better ways to help the children we serve.,

Stuff the Bus

Each year, CRN partners with WSB-TV, Channel 2 for our annual “Stuff the Bus” promotion day. 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!
