Items needed are filler paper, glue sticks, school glue, pens, pencils, pencil erasers, block erasers, three-ring notebooks, pocket folders, rulers, one-subject notebooks, scissors, hand sanitizers, tissues, backpacks, crayons, markers and colored pencils.
Items can be dropped off at Staples or The Children’s Connection staff can pick up donationed supplies until mid-September.
