The City of Coral Springs is helping economically disadvantaged children obtain their much-needed school supplies for the year through a community-wide effort.
From July 23 through August 3, 2018, residents can donate pens, pencils, crayons, double pocket folders, composition books, backpacks, tissues, hand sanitizer, rulers, scissors, glue and loose leaf paper.
“Our goal is to provide Coral Springs children with the tools they need to be successful throughout the school year,” said Kim Sanecki, Volunteer Services Coordinator. “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 at 2801 Coral Springs Drive and City Hall at 9500 West Sample Road.
Monetary donations are also accepted toward supplies and uniforms. School begins August 15 in Broward County. The weekend of August 3-5 is tax-free for school supplies.
