School Supply Donations and Giveaways

It’s back to school time and every year different locations collect school supplies for low income families in the city who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford materials they are told to bring during the first day of school. Supplies can be very expensive! There are also events for giveaways of school supplies. More info follows.
