Friends, you did it again.

With your help, Pooh’s Corner collected over 60 backpacks and countless school supplies for our Cause to Champion, D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s.

Pooh’s Corner did an amazing, heartwarming job supporting and promoting the drive. They really got behind it, setting up a table at the front of their store a well as an entire display behind the registers.



Over the course of the drive, donations grew and grew until they ended up with this.


See all those backpacks? Most are also full of school supplies. How great is that?

D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s was so grateful for our donation. With your help, they were able to provide backpacks and school supplies for over 500 children in their programs.

“The first day of school is often filled with nerves and trepidation for all children, but especially our children who have experienced abuse or neglect,” said Sharon Loughridge, Executive Director of DABSJ.

“With the help of community members like the grkids.com readers, we were able to ensure almost 600 children felt confident and prepared for a great school year, regardless of what has happened in their past.”

D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s has needs throughout the year. If you’d ever like to donate or help, visit their website for a list of ongoing needs or email Maria at [email protected].

Thank you!
