Local group “The Foundation” helps kids who need backpacks, school supplies and winter wear

Two New Bedford natives, Anthony Barros and Jordyn Pina comprise “The Foundation” – a group that gives back to the community by helping kids in need. They donate backpacks and school supplies and so far have helped dozens of kids.

Initially done solely with their own personal money, they quickly discovered that the need far exceeded the demand, and that need went beyond backpacks and school supplies. There are many kids who will go without. For this reason they created a GoFundMe Page to help with a winter clothing drive to give away coats, gloves and hats and more to those who will need them.

“If you have used coats, gloves, hats, socks, tooth paste or anything that we can give away to the kids, please help.” pleaded Anthony. “We call this group “The Foundation” because we believe the foundation of a home is the strongest part of the house – it supports the rest of the home, we believe the same concept with our community our kids are our foundation the stronger group of kids the stronger community we have!”
