Safe Harbor Financial is once again partnering with Volunteers of America Southeast, Inc. (VOASE) to help provide and fill backpacks for children in our area for the upcoming school year. The organization works with the Mobile County Department of Human Resources and other local non-profit organizations to provide much-needed school supplies to children who would otherwise be without. According to the VOASE website:
Over the past 8 years Operation Backpack has provided supplies to over 5,000 children. “There are many children who would start the first day of school without even a pencil,” said Wallace Davis, President and CEO of VOASE. “This program enables us to give every foster child a backpack and enough supplies to get them through the first part of the school year. It is our mission to reach and uplift all people, especially children.”

Our Safe Harbor Financial family of clients has previously partnered with VOASE and provided for children at Christmastime through their 10 Caring Gifts for Volunteers of America Drive. This time we can help the same children be better prepared for learning when we make sure they have the necessary supplies for the start of the school year.
