Arrowhead United Way School Supplies Drive
August 1st, 2013–Education gives the youth an opportunity to grow, gain knowledge and skills and a chance at a bright future. Without basic supplies to prepare children for back to school, the quality of their work and overall education are put at risk. Arrowhead United Way is conducting its annual back to school drive to collect school supplies for disadvantaged children in San Bernardino County. We are reaching out to the community and asking for any of the following items: #2 pencils, pens, markers, colored pencils, crayons, highlighters, pencil sharpeners, erasers, 3-ring binders, loose leaf paper, spiral notebooks, dividers, pocket folders, rulers, blunt tip scissors, glue sticks and index cards.
Individuals or groups who want to participate can deliver any materials they collected to Arrowhead United Way at 646 North D Street, San Bernardino, CA 92401 by Tuesday, August 6th. It is our goal to provide 700 children with backpacks filled with the essential equipment children need for learning. Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway helped kick start our goal with their generous donations. Join in our effort to give children the tools they need to succeed!
