Back-to-School Supply Drive will help Mission Viejo elementary schools
In an effort to help our local elementary schools facing funding deficits escalated by the COVID-19 crisis, the City of Mission Viejo and PKSA Karate are teaming up to host a Back-to-School Supply Drive through August 18.
With schools unsure when children can return to the classroom, planning for the school year has become exceedingly difficult for administrators and teachers. When kids do finally return to school, they won’t be able to share anything.
The most-needed supplies include #2 pencils, markers, crayons, colored pencils, child-safe scissors, glue sticks, folder with pockets and single-subject notebooks. Drop off your donations from 8 am to 4 pm weekdays at the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center, 24932 Veterans Way, and Monday through Thursday from 4-7 pm at PKSA Karate, 25290 Marguerite Parkway, Suite A.
For more information, contact 949-470-3062 or email@example.com.
Are gently used supplies acceptable?
For this particular drive, only new/unopened supplies can be accepted.
Staples has each of these items on sale for .50 to .97 each. I just bought a shopping bag full and the total come to less than $14.
