Back to school shopping is underway, but some children will head back to the classroom without much-needed, basic supplies. To help make sure all children are prepared for success, the city is collecting school supplies for economically disadvantaged children in the community.
Held from July 22 through August 5, 2019, some of the items needed are pens, pencils, crayons, double pocket folders, composition books, backpacks, tissues, hand sanitizer, rulers, scissors, glue, loose-leaf paper, etc. (new items only). Full list here.
“Our goal is to provide Coral Springs children with the tools they need to be successful throughout the school year,” said Volunteer Services Coordinator Kim Sanecki. “We recognize that local businesses, organizations, and residents can help us achieve that goal.”
Donations can be dropped off at any of the following locations: The Coral Springs Police and Fire Public Safety Building lobby, which is open 24-hours-a-day at (2801 Coral Springs Drive) and City Hall open Monday – Thursday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. (9500 West Sample Road).
Monetary donations are also accepted toward supplies and uniforms. School begins August 14 in Broward County.
