School Supplies Drive

At the beginnings of each school year we raise a collection of supplies for students and staff at Washington Elementary School across the street. This collection leads up to a community outreach event called the Backpack Blessing.
Recommended supplies include the following: Clorox wipes, Kleenex, hand sanitizer, folders, notebooks, glue bottles/sticks, pencil cases/boxes, crayons, markers, colored pencils, large erasers, pencils, pens (blue and black), scissors, rulers, loose leaf paper, underwear, gift cards, socks, tennis shoes, dry erase markers (black and blue), Post-It notes, highlighters
