Featured Program: School Supply Program


School supplies 2


Back to School Season is right around the corner and we are starting our annual school supplies drive!


Our goal is to ensure that every child in our community has the opportunity to go to school fully prepared and eager to learn—and that means they need their school supplies! Last year, with the help of generous donations from members of the community, we were able to provide 377 students with their required school supplies for the year


Some of the items that we need the most are:

1” 3 ring binder – white with clear cover

COLLEGE RULED filler paper

Flash drives

Notebook – single subject, COLLEGE RULED

#2 pencils

Black or blue ballpoint pens

Box of 12 colored pencils

Box of 24 colored pencils

Markers – wide, washable, box of 8

Markers – fine tip, washable, box of 8

Tab dividers, 5 pack

Dry erase markers – chisel – black

Package of 12-15 eraser caps

Pink block eraser

Folders – paper, 2 pocket, with brads

Small elmer’s glue stick

Yellow highlighters

Index cards –3x5, ruled, pack of 100

Monetary donations used to buy supplies that are not donated


We ask that you do NOT donate wide ruled paper, we have more than enough and would like to focus on supplies that we can use
