During the month of July, Eastern’s Blue Jean Friday donations were allotted towards the Boys Home of the South.  The Boys Home of the South is a non-profit, non-denominational residential group home dedicated to the care, education, and nurturing of troubled boys.  Their mission is simple.  Mend boys.  Build men.  Presently, fifty boys are residing in this home.

Eastern hopes to help contribute to these boys’ well-being by helping them prepare for the upcoming school year.  With the July donations, Eastern was able to buy thirteen back packs and many other back to school items for the boys.  This need is so great that we have decided to continue to collect money and school supplies through August as well.
