A Fun Way to Get Ready for the New School Season

A special note from The Heart2Heart Foundation

It has certainly been a challenging year in so many ways. For those of you who have experienced illness or possibly loss in your families, please know that our thoughts and prayers have been with you. While we have converted many of our programs to virtual platforms, we are so glad that our team has found a way to (safely) host our Back2School Block Party for local families again this year. 

Because our event draws hundreds of families, it isn't possible to hold the event inside just yet. Our first priority is to keep everyone as safe as we can. So, please know, we will be following current CDC and SC DHEC guidelines for COVID-19 mitigation rules. We will send out updated information prior to the event and appreciate your help!

Since we can't hold the event inside ... we're going OUTSIDE! Parents/guardians who register for the book bags will be able to pick them up and visit with some of our community partners for more free resources, services and giveaways.  We would love to see your kids with you but if you feel safer leaving them at home, we completely understand and support that decision. 

We are so grateful for the generosity of Healthy Blue South Carolina who has donated book bags for 2,000 local students. Book bags - with school supplies - will be available for preschool, K5, elementary, middle and high school students from York, Chester and Lancaster Counties. Please subscribe to our email newsletter or follow us on our Facebook page for updates! 

On behalf of our planning team, our board and our volunteers, we look forward to seeing you all this year. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!

From the heart,
