School Supply Drive 2018 – WE ARE FINISHED!
Once again our community has stepped up and helped out some local kids so when September comes the kids will be ready for school! Many many thanks to all who sent in donations – big or small they all add up! Many thanks also to everyone who donated time to help transfer the supplies to the school, sort the supplies, count the gift cards, communicate with the families to line up who needs what, coordinate with our drop off locations, etc. It’s another team effort for sure! See below for some fun pictures from sorting day, 2018. Any last minute questions – send a note to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We recognize that ALL donations of supplies, gift cards, cash, and time are important, but we want to send a special shout out to the following groups or businesses who lend an extra hand to the event:
RE/MAX Main Line Charitable Foundation – for a donation of gift cards
