The Caring Tree collects, purchases and distributes school supplies to k-12 students in Minnesota with a goal of making sure every child is adequately prepared to learn on the first day of school.
While donations are welcomed anytime, Caring Tree places a special emphasis on its annual drive, which is July 20th through August 6th this year.
Individuals can help in two ways, monetary donations, or donations of supplies. Caring Tree can turn $20 into a backpack filled with 30 supplies kids will need in school. For more on how to donate, visit Caring Tree.
The Hwa Rang Do Minneapolis Academy at Diamond Lake Rd. and Nicollet Ave. is hosting a Zumba party Saturday, July 21st from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with proceeds benefiting The Caring Tree. Other events can be found at The Caring Tree events.
