Great Opportunity for Community Service and to Help Those in Need

An outreach program in Queens has asked for our help in procuring school supplies to help kids of needy families get ready for the new school year. You can use the attached flyer to request donations from, neighbors, family and friends. 
 
The school supplies will be distributed at a Free Kidz Day Event in Springfield Park on August 10th.

• Bottled water

• Juice boxes

• Book bags

• Pencils

• Pens

• Rulers

• Glue sticks

• Erasers

• Binders 

• Loose leaf paper

Time spent soliciting will count towards your community service, so log your hours accordingly. Any and all help with this event, as always, is appreciated!
