On 12/26/2017, The Washington State Office of the Attorney General reported on the findings of their investigation of Back to School Helping Hands in an article titled, "AG FERGUSON FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST FAMILY FOR POCKETING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DONATIONS MEANT FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The Washington State Office of the Attorney General article.

  • Back to School Helping Hands is an alternative name used for Emergency Relief Services, which currently has a High Concern CN Advisory.

The concerns raised about illegal activity, improper conduct, or organizational mismanagement are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory.
