Helping Kids Be Kids with the School Supplies They Need to Achieve
As all the Back to School Savings fliers would suggest… it’s that time of year again! Ah yes ~ Wake County schools are starting and it’s time to start collecting all those school supplies from “the list”.
Collecting school supplies from the school supply list means different things to different families. For some it’s an exciting bonding time with the kids picking out cool colored pencils and markers, but for many it brings concern about where the expensive supplies are going to come from.
Particularly right now, lots of people around the U.S. are struggling. If you’re either in need of school supplies or if you’d like to help out, a few organizations around the Triangle have school supply drives going on right now.
We were proud to be apart of the Friends of the Guardian ad Litem Program again this year at Prudential YSU Realty. Our North Hills office provided backpacks filled with school supplies for 40 children in need. Being able to help made us all smile.
While there are many local drives going on right now in Wake County, NC, as a starting point there’s one sponsored by Wake County First In Families, and another by Communities in Schools of North Carolina (partnered with Walmart), as well as a number of drives from local churches.
Do you know of others? We’d love to hear about them and help get the word out.
We also recently wrote about school bus safety in Wake County, NC. Have a topic you’d like to read about? Let us know that too!
