As summer begins to wind down, our focus shifts to preparing students for the upcoming school year. Our hope is that they have a wonderful school year. We want them to have the best teachers, make good grades, make new friends and have fun. Most of all, we want to give them the necessary tools and resources to do well in school.
In a few weeks, local students will be heading back to school. Right now, the store shelves are stocked with school supplies, and many children are starting to pick out their backpacks and binders. However, there are children that need school supplies too that you won’t find at the store shopping. Thus, they shouldn’t be forgotten.
Austin Children’s Shelter is in urgent need of school supplies. They’ve created a list of supplies that they need your help in getting. One Child’s School Supply Listincludes a backpack, binders, folders, notebooks, pencils, pens, markers and so much more. Donations can be dropped off at the shelter’s administrative office, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. Just a reminder, school starts on Monday, August 27!
WHEN: Friday, July 27, 2012 – Friday, September 7, 2012
Monday – Friday, from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.
