Back to School Supply Drive
Monday, August 12th
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
Customer Service, Charitable Donation

This year, we're teaming up with Interfaith Works to help with their Back to School Supply Drive!  All items can be dropped off at Customer Service!  See information from their website below!

 

This year’s Annual School Supplies Drive will provide new backpacks and school supplies to 2,500 students who want to start the 2013-2014 school year ready to learn. For many families in Montgomery County, the cost of rent, food, utilities, and $50 for school supplies for each of their children is just too much. You can help these students go back to school, ready to start a successful year.

 

Top 5 items needed:

  • Backpacks (K-12)
  • Packages of lined filler paper
  • Tab dividers
  • 2-pocket folders
  • Pencil pouches

Other needed items:

1-subject notebooks, composition books, large pink erasers, packages of big markers, pens (red and black), scissors (blunt tip and pointed tip), rulers, pencil boxes, boxes of colored pencils
