Backpack buddies needed – donate school supplies to needy kids in our community.
In July, the Community Service Initiative will kick off a backpack drive for students in need of school supplies. Last year we collected more than 200 backpacks for local schools.
Each department is invited to prepare two backpacks, one for a boy and one for a girl, in kindergarten through eighth grade. Please make sure the backpacks do not have wheels in order to meet school requirements.
The department collection will run from Tuesday, July 5 to Tuesday, July 26. Drop-off is Tuesday, July 26 from 7:30am to 11:30pm in the Rotary Room, first floor, Clatanoff Pavilion.
Here are some suggested items to include:
3 ring binder
Lined filler paper
Red correcting pens
Small tip markers
Back packs (non-rolling)
Pencil pouch/supply case
Blue and black ink pens
Individual pack tissues
