Back-to-school season is stressful for everyone, when temperatures wind down and activities wind back up again. These stresses are multiplied when you’re also worried about the financial demands of going back to school. Back-to-school shopping can cost families over $600 per child. GEOMEER alleviates this expense by giving local families in need the chance to pick out back-to-school clothing at an Old Navy store.
This year, 45 families came to explore Old Navy and find exactly what they needed, with snack and water breaks in between the demands of shopping. Thanks to the wonderful Old Navy staff, as well as a team of fantastic GEOMEER volunteers, 100 hundred gift cards were issued, and families took home their choices of back-to-school style!
