AUGUST 17, 2016:
Always an amazing day here at the Council!
Over 90 students from low-income families participated in the 2015 Annual Back to School Supplies Distribution Program…backpacks, folders, binders, markers, pens, pencils, crayons, colored pencils, index cards, scotch tape – everything a student needs to be ready for a new school year!
We had kids starting kindergarden who need crayons and tissues; adults in college and vocational programs who need calculators and flash drives and everyone in between.
All supplies were donated by Needham residents and local businesses; a group of employees from a Needham consulting firm donated several hours of their time to help us set up and brought us hundreds of items purchased with employee funds, matched by a corporate donation…a local family donated gift cards to Staples, worth $30 each, to distribute to EVERY student…boxes of school supplies were sent to us anonymously, and more….
One Mom came with 3 kids and she left in tears and said…“I don’t know how I would manage without your support”…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 2016 distribution program better than ever..donate now!
