NASW recently announced a partnership with Alice's Kids, a charity that serves children across the country. They pay for these items upon the receipt of a simple Request Form that you just need to email to firstname.lastname@example.org. They will pay for such items that cost in the range of $100 within 48 hours by either issuing a check or sending you an electronic gift card.
in the course of your day you often hear (or see) about a child who needs new sneakers, who cannot afford a yearbook, who would love to go to summer camp, who needs a new pair of glasses. These are not necessarily "big ticket" items, but when a student cannot attend the field trip or can't afford Girl Scout registration, they feel left out, they feel different - even ashamed. In the past you probably frantically started searching for possible resources to come up with the $100 or so to pay for the item. There is no need to look any further.
