Helping Hands is preparing for the upcoming school year. I know it is hard to believe we must think about school supplies when summer is just getting underway but here we are 🙂 Last year we provided supplies to 143 children. We anticipate somewhat higher numbers this year as we are experiencing a 33 % increase in numbers through the first 6 months of 2016. We have inventoried our leftover supplies and I have attached a list of supplies we are in need of. I hope that it is convenient for you to copy it and provide it to anyone who might want to have a reference to take shopping.
School supplies may be dropped off at Helping Hands any T-W or TH between 9 and 2:30. In order to prepare the supplies for distribution please have them to HHN by August 9th.
We are also in need of volunteers to pack up the school supply bags on August 11, 2016 starting at 9 AM. This usually only takes a couple of hours so it is a great opportunity to volunteer!
As always, we are SO APPRECIATIIVE of the generous support from our community. Thank you for helping our children prepare for learning this school year. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to call me at 330-866-2005.
