School Supplies (donate)

What You Can Do
  • Donate backpacks to agencies dealing with the homeless community.  Homeless people need backpacks to carry their possessions.  
  • Donate school supplies to agencies which distribute them to needy children.  Both family and school budgets are tight; and schools are now asking families of schoolchildren to supply beyond the basics with items such as hand sanitizer, copy paper and scientific calculators.  Parents requesting these supplies will generally need to bring proof of eligible children, such as a medical coupon and identification.
  • Donate to your child’s school, a specific teacher, or a specific project.  View http://www.DonorsChoose.org to see what local teacher requests come from what schools.  “Lessons in Gratitude.  Teachers turn to online donors to fund classrooms.”  CBS This Morning, Dec. 8, 2014
