Monthly Update - May 2011


Back to

School Drive
- Open up a whole new world for a child in need!


Education is critical to breaking the cycle of poverty. Many children, though, face the new school year without the tools they need to learn. NAM’s Back to School Project provides these students with the required school supplies, to make sure they return to school on an even playing field.


Your gift of $20 will provide supplies for one child. Please make a gift today to help one child, five children, or even a whole classroom prepare for the next school year. To make a gift, go to Click on Special Projects, then Virtual Back to

School Drive



Our goal is to raise $30,000.
