School Supplies

Summer is traditionally a time when many stores have school supplies on sale before students return in the fall. Some schools now operate year-round as well. Please consider purchasing a few extra things to help students who can’t afford basic needs. We will help students of various ages with this month’s collections. Donations will go to Hillcrest Youth Center, Sunburst Youth Housing and Mi Escuelita program of South Bay Community Services.

The most needed item this year: Backpacks. We will also collect school supplies such as these: Paper: white computer paper, regular and legal size; card stock; colored copy paper; graph paper; post it notes; Markers: highlighters in all colors; fine and regular tip permanent markers in black and colors; dry erase markers; Pens; pencils; colored pencils; pencil erasers; pencil sharpeners; Glue sticks; Watercolors; Hot laminating sheet pouches; Sheet protectors; Flash drives; scientific calculators

For any questions, please contact Mitzvah of the Month Chairs Aaron Borovoy at (619) 890-9182 or Marilyn Ponseggi at (619) 444-9163, Bring your donations to the white barrel in the lobby of the Temple office building, and the Social Action Committee will deliver them to appreciative students.
