Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home Requesting School Supplies, Uniforms for Residents

In just a few short weeks, the Lee and Beulah Moor Children’s Home will be sending 80 children back to school for the 2018/2019 school year.

Officials with the home are asking for support from the community to help those 80 children go back to school with uniforms and all the supplies they’ll need.

“With 80 kids going back to school, that means 80 pairs of new shoes, 80 backpacks, 80 sets of school supplies and 80 children needing new school clothes or uniforms…[and] helping is easy,” officials shared via an email. “While you’re out shopping, pick up some extra supplies. We always need help with combination locks, USB sticks, and earbud headphones.”

Another way to get involved is to sponsor one of our 25 elementary or middle school students and help us with their required uniforms.

For $150, residents can buy a child everything necessary for their uniform needs. That’s 5 pairs of pants, 5 monogrammed polos and a school spirit jacket or hoodie.  For information on the various programs, click here.

Additionally, residents can contribute to the Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home supply fund online, via  this link.

The home is open Monday through Friday, 8 AM – 5 PM, and is at located 1100 East Cliff Drive for donation drop-offs.

Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home School Supply Donation Drive Underway

While the summer sun is still shining and children are out of school, officials with El Paso’s own Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home are already preparing for the upcoming school year.

To that end, the home has kicked off their donation drive for the 2017-18 school year.  According to officials with the home, many of the children in their care have never started the school year with a new outfit or uniform.

“The stress of going to a new school is pressure enough, without having to worry what other kids think and feeling inadequate because of old, worn clothes.”

A donation of $30 can purchase a complete school uniform for one child. Just $150 will dress a child for success at school with three complete uniforms and a new pair of shoes.

“At Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home it is our priority to give our children the same childhood experiences as any other child in the schools, the feeling of excitement as they get ready for another academic school year. To succeed, they need basic school supplies, including pens, pencils, backpacks, notebooks, uniforms and of course, new shoes,” officials added.

Donors can make an important contribution to the kids by donating school supplies. Home officials say, “In-kind gifts allow us to spend more of our budget dollars on critical services for children and families.”

Following is their wish list for school supplies; the list is by no means exhaustive. If you have something else to donate, please suggest it.

  • RED Pens
