It’s that time of year again – youngsters are heading for places like Staples with Mom and Dad in tow -looking for a fresh set of school supplies to start the new year with. Although I hated going back to school – I remember enjoying having newly sharpened pencils – a nice box of Crayolas – and some notebooks and binders.
Most of us take the school supply list for granted. It’s just on our list of “things to do.” But there are needy families out their in our back yard so to speak – where such supplies are a luxury item and no monies are available to be set aside for this yearly ritual.
So local radio station WFAS is joining forces with The Westchester County Department of Social Services and they are both asking the public to help provide schools supplies for the less fortunate children in the county.
Right now the are looking fro unused backpacks, notebooks, pens, binders, pencils, crayons or anything else that a child might need. Certainly erasers, rulers and many other items can be included.
The supplies can be dropped off at:
365 Secor Rd.
Hartsdale, NY 10530
