The Children First Leadership Academy (Formerly the Thomas J. Pappas School) inspires students to be critical thinkers, problem solvers and active citizens. The school serves the whole child by providing Transportation, Food, Clothing & Medical Care.  

100% of the students and their families are at or below the poverty line and a vast majority of students are Homeless.  There are approximately 300 students Grade K-8 that need your help.

During the months of August and September we collected items for the students, ranging from Food, Clothing, Healthcare and Hygiene items and of course, School supplies.  We had bins located in our reception area, and our patients filled them up quickly!
