Bridge the Gap for America's Kids

BRIDGE THE GAP FOR AMERICA’S KIDS

Choose your favorite activity and start fundraising!

You may be shocked to learn that 1 in 4 children in rural America is living in poverty. Many are unsure where their next meal will come from. Many more face racial inequity. Still more don't have access to books or the internet. And while the coronavirus pandemic hasn't caused any of the issues faced by these families, it's very likely making them worse.

These gaps threaten the future of our next generation. We need your help to close these gaps.

Join us on September 26th to close the gap for kids in America.

If you have any questions, you can reach us at bridge@savechildren.org
