School Supplies Drive

THE NEED

DSC_0168psThis year’s Annual School Supplies Drive will provide new backpacks and school supplies to more than 2,000 students who want to start the 2014-2015 school year ready to learn. For many families in Montgomery County, the cost of rent, food, utilities, and $50 for school supplies for each of their children is just too much. You can help these students go back to school, ready to start a successful year.

TOP FIVE NEEDED ITEMS:

  1. Backpacks (grades K-12)
  2. Packages of lined filler paper
