I like to collect school supplies along with my MOMS Club in the month of August for back to school in September. We take these supplies over to the Maltby Food Bank and they fill up back packs for kids in need. They also stock up some of the teachers closets with what they have left over.
Do you have a local program that you support?
If not, you might want to look into it and look into Clorox’s Power a Bright Future program.
About the Power A Bright Future Grant Program
· Power A Bright Future is a grant program aimed at providing necessary resources to help support school programs that enrich kids’ lives.
· As part of Power A Bright Future, Clorox is calling on individuals to nominate schools in need for a chance to win a $50,000 grand-prize grant or one of three $20,000 grants to help provide critically needed resources to schools programs that enrich kids’ lives and create brighter futures.

Earlier this month, I attended Clorox’s 2010 BlogHer session where I learned more about the Power a Bright Future program and received free product samples and giveaways.
