School Supply Daze!
It seems like school was just out yesterday. The City of Hope is planning a school supply drive for children who will be in grades K-4 that live in the Oakwood Village trailer community and attend Marguerite Vann Elementary.
This year we are hoping to supply every child in Oakwood with everything they need for their back to school backpacks. We are using the school supply list from Marguerite Vann Elementary School (also available at Wal-Mart off Dave Ward Drive). We have attached the list for your information. The cost to build a complete school list with backpack is approximately $35.00. You must indicate on the backpack what grade level the items are for. You may drop the backpack(s) off at our home or bring them with you to help distribute as noted below. It is important that we are made aware of your intentions that every child from Oakwood be covered with the supplies they will need.
If you can help with any of these supplies and/or distributing these supplies please contact Nicolle Fletcher at 501-499-1043 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be distributing the supplies at Marguerite Vann Elementary School on the first day of school which is Wednesday August 19, 2009. Please give us a hand in assisting children back to school with items they need to enhance their learning experience and most importantly display the love of Christ to them and their families.
