School Supply Donations Needed

Soon it will be “back to school” time for parents and students around the New York City area and this means many of us are getting a list-full of school supplies at our local office supply chain, drug store or ordering them online.  School begins on September 7th and many have already begun shopping after getting classroom wish lists in the mail.  It’s always a little stressful and the costs add up quickly, especially if you have multiple children.

Unfortunately, there are many New Yorkers who are unable to afford this expense and, thankfully, there are organizations set up to give out donated supplies for their kids.  We have found a couple of sources in Brooklyn where you can find out about donating or receiving donations.  The Coalition For The Homeless is collecting supplies for homeless children throughout the five boroughs until August 25th.  Check out their website to see where you can drop-off and what they need.

Community Board 14 has posted a list of events in their area (Flatbush, Midwood and Kensington) where parents can pick up free school supplies for their kids.  They also have more information on how to donate for those wanting to help out!
