Operation Fresh Start

The brainchild of LifeNet’s President & CEO, Dr. Melanie Geddes, this innovative idea called “Operation Fresh Start” was born out of a desire to maximize resources and minimize duplication of efforts. While many local agencies and faith-based organizations provide school supplies at the start of the school year, children often need additional supplies during the year, especially after the winter break. Many parents do not have the resources to ensure their children are prepared. Sadly, for the poorest families in our community, the struggle to respond to this complex equation of demand and school supply right after the holidays, becomes a critical choice between books and other vital necessities such as food, shelter and paying for utilities.

 

This year, thanks to the help from many in our community, we were able to host a two-day event where hundreds of children found themselves benefiting from this initiative. Children and parents where given new backpacks, school supplies, shoes, and books in order to guarantee a successful second semester of education!
