The Stop Bullying Now Foundation raises money ..
Meet the National Council of Jewish Women - a 120 year old volunteer organization that does advocacy and community service to improve the quality of life for women, children and families. One main issue in our community is that we have more than 30 public elementary schools in Palm Beach County with over 95% of enrolled children who live at or below the federal poverty level.
The families of these children are not always able to provide the clothing, school supplies and personal care items that the children need. Issues arise when a child has an in-school accident, when a child's only jersey is soiled early in the week and the parent cannot get to a laundromat until the weekend, when the child outgrows the pants and shirt purchased for the first day of school and there is no money to buy the child a new one. The situations are real, and the ability of the school to meet these needs because of the Kids Community Closet keeps children in school and focused on learning.
