ITEMS NEEDED: Index cards, back packs, colored pencils, markers, tape, notebooks, flash drives, folders, pens, pencils, crayons, tissues, baby wipes, hand sanitizer… everything a student needs to be ready for a new school year!
All supplies are donated by Needham residents and local businesses; a group of employees from a Needham consulting firm donates many hours of their time to help us set up and brings hundreds of items purchased with employee funds, matched by a corporate donation…a local family donates gift cards to Staples, worth $25 each, to distribute to EVERY student…boxes of school supplies are sent to us anonymously, and more….
Over 90 students from income-eligible families participated in the 2018 Annual Back to School Supplies Distribution Program. One Mom came with 3 kids and she left in tears and said…“I don’t know how I would manage without your support”…and, we don’t know how we would manage without the support of the entire Needham community.
Let’s do it again……help us make the 2019 distribution program better than ever..donate now!
