School Supplies Drive

We’ve partnered with State Rep. Deb Conroy for a School Supply Drive. Our mission is to send lower-income children to school with confidence! A new backpack and supplies gives children in struggling families the right head start. Look for the collection bin in our lobby and donate by Mon, 08/15.

Imagine a youngster starting the school year without a new backpack or even primary school supplies. With the ongoing pandemic, high unemployment, and more than 30 million students enrolled in the free and reduced meal programs, many parents are unable to provide the basic school supplies their children need to be effective. In addition, schools across the country are facing severe budget cuts and lack the funding to purchase necessary supplies. They need your help to start the year with confidence and the essential school supplies.

If you want to help schools realize the classroom’s potential to help students grow, read this guide about how school supplies impact student learning.
