School begins again in August. Schools are expecting children to come prepared with backpacks filled with supplies, but some families just can’t afford them. The Outreach and Service Commission is once again sponsoring a SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE to collect backpacks and school supplies for the children in The Living Room -- the daytime drop-in center for homeless mothers and their children.
As you shop for school supplies for your own children, please pick up a few extras from the list below. Collection begins on July 2 and ends August 6 when we take the collections to The Living Room. Collection boxes are located at both Montgomery and Stony Point campuses. Won’t you help send a child back to school with a new backpack and a big smile?
