WHAT DID WE DO?
DONATE & MAKE A DIFFERENCE
On behalf of the Dhvani Foundation, we want to extend our heart-felt thank you for being a generous sponsor for Dhvani Back2School Event. With your donations and sponsorship, we were able to donate hundreds of dollars’ worth of school bags with school supplies, such as crayons, calculators, paper towels, scissors, binders, folders, markers, pens, pencils, rulers, paper, glue sticks and hand sanitizer. Students who could otherwise not afford such supplies will now have those items for their use at the beginning of the school year.
As the school year begins, please know that because of you, kids can be proud of their new backpack, brimming with school supplies. Regardless of where kids call home, on their first day, the quality of their backpacks and school supplies, or lack-there-of, will no longer be a barrier to their confidence and success in education.
Once again, we are so overwhelmed and humbled by all of your support and generosity. As the school year begins, please know your donation of backpacks with supplies will positively influence the lives of 5000 Saint Louis are under-privileged children.
