There are two more days to help Baltimore Public School students by donating school supplies!
Baltimore County Public Schools’ annual “Back to School Involves You, Too!” school supply drive is in progress, and all of Baltimore County Public Library’s 19 branches are accepting donations through Friday, August 17.
The drive, which is held in association with The Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public Schools, appeals for school supplies of all kinds. But there is definitely a hot list of most needed items. Those items are folders, composition books/notebooks, pencils, crayons, highlighters/markers, glue sticks, scissors, backpacks, binders, pens and Post-It notes. Donations can be placed in the large cardboard boxes that are conspicuously displayed in each library.
Can’t donate at your local branch? Join the BCPL’s “Stuff a Truck” event at their Cockeysville branch on Saturday. Greg Carpenter from Today’s 101.9 will be there from 12 PM – 2 PM helping the library accept last minute donations.
We know what you’re thinking: what happens to all of the supplies once they are collected? Well, donations will be taken to Boscov’s at White Marsh Mall and sorted. Baltimore County Public Schools teachers will be asked to make an appointment to visit the location on August 25 and pick up items they can share with their students in need.
“The last thing children should worry about on the first day of school is a lack of supplies,” said Director Paula Miller, “and we’re happy to be able to help kids in need get started on a successful year.”
