Teachers have requested donation of school Supplies such as pens, pencils, binders, papers, markers etc and a Backpack for each student to carry these Supplies. The timeline is to solicit donations and engage in Fund Raising from February to September 2018, Purchase the items in July/August meet as a group with community volunteers to pack the Supplies by grade and school and deliver them to Back to School Night in September 2018. The District Grant will be used to supplement Club Community Service Funds and community donations to purchase bulk rate school Supplies and Backpacks.
