School Supplies Donation Is a Huge Hit for Students in Miami 

Organization: Young Dreams Community Outreach
Lives Impacted: 1,300
Donation: Dollar Days  

Young Dreams Community Outreach was established in December 2009. The nonprofit organization focuses on children in our communities and their futures. We provide children with educational supplies, books, hands-on activities and positive interactions that will impact their lives. Our mission is to reach out to communities in the City of Miami and help homeless families, abused women, children, and the elderly. We provide clothing, food, hygiene products, school supplies, and toys in hopes to help reduce the effects of poverty. 

Thanks to Dollar Days, we were able to provide 1,300 children in the City of Miami with book bags and supply packets for their return to school. Many children were referred by local outreach agency, the Children’s Trust, which helps families in dire need. Our organization helps children experience and envision their dreams for the future. We provide children the opportunity to experience different careers during our back-to-school event while also providing them with educational supplies, fun activities and a great time. With charity and grants we are making a difference for the children’s futures. We hosted an annual free event for the public in need, providing book bags, supplies, career stations, introductions to local attractions, photos with Toy Story characters and so much more. Thank you Good360 and Dollar Days for helping us provide a better future for the children in our community.
