Thousands of public school children start the new school year BEHIND their classmates because their families cannot afford the supplies they need. We are collecting supplies to get them into the hands of our poorest, and many homeless, school children.
NEEDS: Backpacks, 2-pocket folders, #2 pencils, kids’ scissors, colored pencils, markers, 3-ring binders, filler paper, 5-tab dividers, and composition notebooks (wide and college-ruled).
Through August 20, you can drop items off at our office: 700 South Salisbury Street, Raleigh, NC 27601. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 984-222-3645. You can also DONATE by credit card.Simply type BACKPACKS in the comment box.
