July 14 – September 7
Kenwood Towne Centre, a GGP property, is hosting the Crayons to Computers Push 4 Pencils Supply Drive on Saturday, July 14 from 10AM – 3PM. All donations will be accepted at the main entrance next to The Cheesecake Factory. This “Stuff the Van” event kicks off the back-to-school campaign and all donations will go towards leveling the playing field in the classroom by providing students in need with the tools to succeed in school.
Thanks to Macy's, if you can't make it to Kenwood on July 14, you can still drop off your donations in one of the collection bins in their store (Kenwood location only).
July 14 – September 7: Companies, civic groups and organizations are encouraged to host supply drives of their own leading up to the start of the new school year.
Though all new supplies are helpful and appreciated, the Top 7 items that teachers need most are crayons, dry erase markers, filler paper, glue sticks, notebooks, pencils and pocket folders.
One pencil can draw the path to success. One box of crayons can color the imagination with new possibilities. These ordinary supplies can have an extraordinary impact. As one teacher said, “Students come to school with no supplies. Just pencils and lined paper from Crayons to Computers makes all the difference in my classroom!” Let’s give them the tools they deserve and the chance to achieve anything … one pencil at a time.
