Join Me in Doing More for Children of Parents Incarcerated!
by Nancy McCormick-Pickett
Hi Friends and Family,

This year for Do More 24, I have joined OAR of Arlington, Alexandria, and Falls Church in support of second and fair chances! For those of you who aren't familiar, OAR is a community-based nonprofit organization working with men and women returning to the community from incarceration and offering alternative sentencing options through community service to youth and adults. They truly do great work in the community and I am proud to be a supporter of their mission!

This year, OAR is raising funds for their "Project Backpack" program. Project Backpack is a back-to-school program that provides new backpacks and school supplies for children who have a parent incarcerated locally in the D.C. Metro area. Each child participating in this program will receive a brand new backpack and age-appropriate school supplies as well as a handwritten letter from their parent who is incarcerated to wish them luck on the next school year and to remind them they are not forgotten. This program was created last year in an effort to assist those involved in the criminal justice system and their families. Having a parent incarcerated places huge financial obstacles for a family. This program will relieve at least some of this financial strain on these families when it comes to back to school shopping and provide these children with the supplies they need for educational success!

Your DoMore24 donations will directly support OAR's Project Backpack program by helping fund mailing costs to send backpacks and school supplies to children who live outside of the local delivery area as well as to purchase any necessary items to ensure that each child will receive supplies. I hope you will join me in supporting these children and families, together we can truly make an impact on these families' lives! Any gift, no matter the size, is appreciated!
