The City of Coral Springs is helping economically disadvantaged children obtain their much needed school supplies for the year through a community-wide effort.
Through August 15, residents can donate pens, pencils, crayons, double pocket folders, composition books, backpacks, tissues, hand sanitizer, rulers, scissors, glue and loose leaf paper.
“Through the help of city staff, volunteers and the community, we can give these children the supplies they need to be properly prepared for the school year,” said Volunteer Services Coordinator Kim Sanecki.
Donations can be dropped off at any of the following locations: Volunteer Services inside Mullins Park, 10000 Ben Geiger Drive (N.W. 29th St.); Police Department Lobby, 2801 Coral Springs Drive; City Hall, 9551 W. Sample Road; City Hall in the Mall at Coral Square Mall; or Marco’s Pizza, 8220 Wiles Road.
Cash donations are also accepted toward supplies and uniforms. School begins August 21 in Broward County.
