Back To School For America's Poor

Give a poor kid a book bag, you'll feel better.
Back To School For America's Poor

Remember getting ready for the first day of school, with your new book bag and pencil case? Remember the excitement? Some families can't afford even that.

Camden is one of the poorest cities in America, and it can be a desolate place. But one of the bright spots in the city is Camden Rescue Mission, which attempts to meet the basic needs of the children and families who live there.

Right now, they're running their annual Back to School Book Bag Drive. If you want to help, here's the info. Or you can find a charity where you live that's does the same thing.

Either way, you'll help a child and make yourself feel good.
