Local 411 – More Supplies Needed For ‘Back To School Drive’
This year, Catholic Charities is planning on helping over 2,000 children with the Back To School Drive to provide the supplies they need for this upcoming school year. Children whose families are having difficulty making ends meet and cannot afford those back to school items will be ready for school with your help. Distribution of the school supplies will begin on August 18th through August 27th while supplies last. Click HERE to donate now.
MORE SUPPLIES ARE NEEDED
Last year, some items were gone by day one! This leaves many families still scrambling to find the remaining supplies needed for the school year. You can help by dropping off an extra notebook, package of pencils...whatever you can manage, your support would be greatly appreciated.
