In a recent message to the charity, Mrs R of Highland, Indiana wrote:
“…..and our family of six is struggling at the moment. Our two sons need gym shoes for school. Our daughters need shoes too but they don’t attend school yet. Any help would be a blessing for us”
Sincere, humble requests like this are common. Struggling families need the community’s help. These children are not able to properly participate in school and play activities. Four pair of shoes for this family’s children would not only allow them to be more physically and socially active but would also provide a wonderful self-esteem boost.
The Buns Care Charity was formed to offer help in many forms to the children in struggling Northwest Indiana families. It has been verified by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, FEIN 81-2779015.
