According to the National Retail Federation, the average family spends almost $700 on children’s clothing, electronics, and back to school supplies each year. Back to school time can be a burden on many low income families- especially to those who have to provide clothing for more than one child. Wouldn’t it be great if back to school shopping was easy and cheap? Of course it would.
The recent budget cuts in education tends to take a big toll in the classroom, not only are there more students cramming into already crowded classes, there are fewer supplies to go around. With limited supplies available some teachers and other parents end up spending their own money to buy pencils, pens, notebooks, and textbooks for students whose families can’t afford them.
The Divine Intervention & Prevention Foundation also know as (D.I.P.) is a non-profit organization whose core objective is to educate and empower families to live healthy, holistic lives without the use of violence as a recourse to solve relationship, personal, and financial plights is seeking donations to help kids ages 5-17 gear up for school.
(D.I.P.) has helped over 1,500 families through the Healing Hearts Jax that has lead to the organization’s program expansion and the kickoff of the #Tools4SchoolJax clothing & school supply giveaway to be held on Saturday August 5 at 10am. To learn more about the organization visit www.Dipfoundation.org
Tools 4 School Jax supports underprivileged students in need with back to school supplies & clothing to make sure that these kids are excited about school and have everything they need to succeed. (D.I.P.) hopes that you will choose to partner in helping children in Duval County return to school with the supplies they need by bringing donations to: D.I.P. Outreach Charity Suite 2078 Cassat Avenue Jacksonville, FL 32210
The Tools 4 School Jax fundraiser really can go along way in making the 2017-2018 school year a happier one for teachers and students alike. Organizations, school groups, businesses, looking to host a drive for #Tools4SchoolJax or schedule a donation pickup should contact Angie 904 438- 4347 or email [email protected]

Everyday Life can have its way of blindsiding us with the latest uploads on Instagram, Facebook live notifications, and snapchat stories about the VMA’s red carpet slayage, and the never-ending antics of the Kardashians on TMZ. Meanwhile we give little or no attention to the less fortunate children and families in our communities that suffer from hunger and abuse.

The pressures of celebrating the holidays sometimes causes tempers to flare, energy levels to soar and arguments to ensue, culminating in an explosion of domestic violence and abuse. Parties, celebrations and festivities are everywhere and the temptation for excess can be intoxicating. Alcohol, drugs, heightened emotions and the wrong combination of family members, are very often contributing factors in violent holiday explosions. In fact, the holiday season can be an exceptionally tough emotional period for many domestic violence victims, even children. Most loving mothers will do whatever is necessary to create a fun and festive holiday environment for her children, however, for children living in a home where violence occurs, very often, Christmas represents a prolonged period of trepidation due to the anticipation of violence.
D.I.P. Foundation is anon-profit that is working to prevent and end domestic violence by developing innovative programs and events that:
“On Saturday, December 13, & Sunday December 14 from 1 – 4pm, D.I.P. Foundation invites children to have their pictures taken with Santa Claus!
