There are over 100 children living at ECTLC who attend public school as their parents transform their lives from homelessness and addiction into self-sufficiency.
When the San Diego County Federation of Republican Women heard of the need for backpacks and school supplies for these children, they rose to the occasion.
As a part of their “Caring for America” program, the Federated Women collected over 140 backpacks filled with school supplies, and lovingly delivered them to the ECTLC kids – along with cake and punch.
” The San Diego County Federation of Republican Women are honored to help such a worthy cause as ECTLC. We love their hand-up philosophy of transforming lives and helping people to become independent, self-sufficient citizens. Whether it’s providing backpacks with school supplies so that the kids can have all they need as they begin the school year, or providing teddy bears for kids to hug as their parents enter into ECTLC from living on the street – we care, and are here for ECTLC and those in need.” Kat Culkin, Chairwoman, Caring For America, San Diego County Federation of Republican Women
“Supplying our kids with backpacks and school supplies helps these children be on a level playing field with their peers as they begin the school year. We are grateful for the continual heartfelt kindness of the San Diego County Federation of Republican Women”. Harold Brown, CEO, ECTLC.
We applaud and thank the SDCFRW for their faithful support and selfless acts of kindness and dedication. We are so blessed to have them “adopting” our ministry.
