School and Craft Supplies

During August, we will collect craft and school supplies to benefit students at Hillcrest Youth Center and the Mi Escuelita program of South Bay Community Services. 

This month, many stores have supplies on sale before students return in the fall. If you can help these students who can’t afford basic school needs, or pick up a few extras while buying some for your own children or grandchildren, we will appreciate donations of these items:

  • Glue sticks; gallons of white glue
  • Hot laminating sheet pouches
  • Paper: white copy paper; white cardboard; colored construction paper
  • Markers and pens: dry erase markers; Crayola markers; blue pens; black permanent markers
  • Note pads; sticky notes; stickers
  • Kinetic sand
  • Sheet protectors; three tab folders with prongs
  • Watercolors; acrylic paints; tempera paint
  • Sketch books; small canvases
  • Embroidery hoops, floss and needles
  • Elastic cord for beading

For any questions, please contact Mitzvah of the Month Chairs Aaron Borovoy at (619) 890-9182 or email aborovoy@ucsd.edu or Marilyn Ponseggi at (619) 444-9163 or email mfponseggi@cox.net.

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.
