This year on Women’s Service Day, our donation drive recipient is Sylvia’s Place, a refuge for those fleeing domestic violence. Many times when children come to the safe house they end up switching schools and have no supplies upon arrival. For Sylvia’s Place, “back to school” is year-round.
We would love to stock them up at our event this year. Even if you can’t volunteer, we encourage you to collect supplies for Sylvia’s Place for drop-off at Hope Church on August 14!
Following is a list of school supplies that this organization could use, in priority order.
- Spiral notebooks
- Two-pocket folders
- Copy paper (for printed homework)
- Mechanical pencils
- Ink pens
- Pencil-top erasers
- Glue sticks
- Hand-held pencil sharpeners
- Colored pencils
Many of these items will likely be on sale soon for traditional back-to-school season. Let’s help families in need keep their kids in school by donating to Sylvia’s Place.
