The average K-12 parents spend a little more than $100 per students on school supplies (i.e) note books, pen/pencils, lunch boxes, backpacks. This does not include clothings, shoes, electronics, computers, phones, which would amount to nearly $700 according to NRF (National Retail Federation) survey. No doubt this cost is a financial burdens for many low income families during "back to school" season. We have been and still collecting school supplies now and throughout the year to be distributed the following academic year to help disadvantaged students. Many school supplies items are on sale or on clearance now, so it doesn't cost much to join us with our "throughout the year " school supplies drive project. Please contact us and we will be happy to pick up your donations at your convenience. We are hoping to accumulate even more supplies for next year 9/2021. Thank you for your support!
