Program that provides back-to-school clothes for kids needs a hand

By the Daily Post staff

East Palo Alto’s Ecumenical Hunger Program is asking for help providing back-to-school clothing for needy kids.

Ellen Izuka of the program said the hunger project has lost a source of funding for its clothing drive, and she’s asking the community to buy Target and Walmart gift cards for students.

“To date, we have 48 gift cards, meaning 952 children who are counting on us to provide new clothes for school will go without,” Izuka said on Friday.
