School supply drive in full swing

Part of getting ready to go back to school, is making sure that students have the supplies they need and are ready to learn. For many of our families, affording school supplies can be a challenge and we are thankful to the volunteers at S.H.A.K.E. who coordinate a school supply each year for our students.

S.H.A.K.E. works directly with Kennewick, Pasco and Richland school districts to make sure that donated school supplies get to the students who need them the most. Volunteers will be collecting supplies until August 12, but donations are accepted all year.

Want to help?

The next time you are at the store pick up some of the most needed items:

  • Glue sticks
  • Crayons
  • Colored markers
  • Pencils
  • 1” and 2” 3-ring binders
  • Filler paper
  • Pencil pouches
  • Erasers
  • Spiral notebooks (college and wide)
  • Backpacks

Thank you to local community partners hosting drop off locations!
