LEAP Back-to-School Breakfast
Back to School Breakfast
On July 27, 2018, Lawyers Encouraging Academic Performance (LEAP) will hold its 8th Annual Back to School Breakfast at Operation Breakthrough (OB), where it will set up school supply stations for OB children to "shop" for their book bags and school supplies for the upcoming school year. In addition to providing supplies, LEAP also hopes to donate gift certificates for school uniforms. Getting kids excited to learn is exactly the reason LEAP began hosting this event so many years ago. By providing school supplies to the Operation Breakthrough students, LEAP hopes to send these students to school feeling confident and empowered to do their very best without the worry of having the pencils and paper they need to get their schoolwork done. More than 500 children from Operation Breakthrough attend the breakfast yearly.
In order to make this year's event a success, LEAP is seeking donations from individuals, area businesses, law firms, and legal organizations to purchase book bags and school supplies for the kids. As LEAP is a 501(c) organization, any donation is tax deductible.
