You can help a local child living in poverty start out the school year with pride in their appearance and the tools they need for success. This year, Samaritan House plans to give backpacks to nearly 850 San Mateo County children in need.

$30 pays for two pairs of brand new children’s shoes.

$50 pays for two backpacks filled with school supplies.
