Ranchers Head Back To School

The 2022-2023 school year will soon begin, and one thing is for sure, we have lots of excited boys and girls. Back to school is always an exciting time. For some of our newer Ranchers, this school year represents a fresh start. This year will be the first time they thrive in their school work.

One Rancher, a boy who has called the ranch home for over 5 years, will get his diploma this year!

This is all thanks to support from friends like you.

Prices continue to rise: You Can Help!

August 22nd we will send our Ranchers back to school. As the costs of living continue to rise, the process of sending so many children back to school becomes increasingly difficult.

Because we have children in grades kindergarten through high school, their supply needs vary greatly. Your online gift is the very best way to make sure every Rancher’s need is covered, even beyond the classroom.

Your gift of $285 can provide everything one Rancher needs for a great school year – new school clothes, a new pair of shoes that fit, a fresh haircut, school supplies, a mask, and a new backpack.

Will you join us today by making a gift? Even a gift of just $30 can give two children a brand new backpack – something they may have never had before and that they will carry with pride! Your gift today not only helps with needs like school supplies and backpacks, but it’s also an investment in the futures of Arkansas boys and girls.

•  $285 can outfit 1 child for the 2022 school year
