Many children are at a disadvantage in learning because they lack even the most basic tools - pencils, paper, rulers, etc. The children are responsible for bringing their own supplies, and some families just can't afford them. Parents are still struggling during the economic recovery, and some may still be looking for work. Public schools do not subsidize this expense. If you can help, please consider donating these supplies and more.
WHAT: State Representative Henry Aquino will be holding his 2nd Annual School Supply Drive to collect school supply donations for the students of August Ahrens and Waipahu Elementary Schools. Items needed: wide-rule folder paper, wide-rule marble composition books, #2 pencils, 4 oz. glue, portfolios, 24- or 48-count crayons, 12-inch rulers. Info: 808-586-6520.
