"As a father with a young child, I know how important it is for students to have the supplies they need in order to do their homework and to learn effectively. We want to see every child going to class well prepared, so we are coming together, as a community, to help give them a good start."

The desired items include:

Wide-rule folder paper

Wide-rule composition books

#2 pencils

4 oz. glue
