School Supplies Drive

THE NEED

This year’s Annual School Supplies Drive will provide new backpacks and school supplies to more than 2,000 students who want to start the 2015-16 school year ready to learn. For many families in Montgomery County, the cost of rent, food, utilities, and $50 for school supplies and a new backpack for each child in the family is just too much. You can help these students go back to school, ready to start a successful year.
