New Backpacks and School Supplies Needed! 2012

North Kent Community Services is preparing for the new school year and hopes to distribute 500 new backpacks with school supplies to children in grades K-12 whose families cannot afford to purchase them. They are asking that we help by donating new backpacks and school supplies before August 15, 2012.

Backpacks are their greatest need. A donation of just $5 will enable them to purchase a nice backpack wholesale. Imagine how happy and successful you can make a child when they start the school year with a brand-new backpack and school supplies like everyone else.

Please consider donating the following new items:

  • pens – black, blue, red
  • two-pocket report folders
  • crayons – 24 packs
  • glue sticks
  • scissors (blunt edge)
  • colored pencils
  • erasers
  • rulers
  • pencil boxes
  • pencils – wood, mechanical
  • washable markers
  • college-ruled notebooks
  • wide-ruled notebooks
  • three-ring binders
  • filler paper

Please bring donated supplies to church and place them in the white chest in the back of the sanctuary by August 12, 2012.

Make monetary donations directly to North Kent Community Services.
