WesternSFA-Children First Academy Support

Book Donations for Homeless Children
To benefit
Children First Academy
(formerly the Thomas J. Pappas School for Homeless Children)

The Children First Academy is a charter school with a goal to provide services directed toward poverty-level and homeless children in grades K-8. Their buses drive 450 miles each day all over the Phoenix Valley and the school provides services that go beyond the responsibilities of regular schools by providing the children and their families with services such as medical and dental assistance, clothing including socks and shoes, food, personal hygiene supplies, and school supplies.

Children First Academy inspires the motivation to learn by engaging students as critical thinkers, problem solvers and active citizens; they strive to serve the whole child by providing hope, fostering strength and facilitating self-determination.

At each Phoenix-area convention at which WesternSFA is present there will be a special donation box near the Fan Table area. We will be collecting books to distribute to homeless children. This donation will stock the school library. The age ranges vary, but we would particularly like to see juvenile fiction. Please take some time to clear your shelves and closets of unwanted books and help a child.

We will take anything you bring - if you donate adult fiction, we have an agreement with a local bookseller to exchange adult fiction for juvenile fiction. So keep an eye out for the big Harry Potter donation box.

Hygiene items are also greatly needed.  You could throw in any soap and shampoo you might have picked up at any hotels.
