Back to School Drive!
School may have started but Southwark school is still looking for donations from their Amazon Wish List to assist their middle school students with the new school year. This is not your typical back to school ask for crayons and construction paper – students in our neighborhood are in need of basic hygiene products to allow them to attend school safely and with confidence. School coordinators have created an amazon wish list to provide children in need discretely with new backpacks stocked with lotion, deodorant, lice treatment, shampoo, and dental care items. Buying items directly from the wish list is the best way to ensure kids in need get the items they require with no waste, although monetary donations are also accepted. Contact elizabeth.hejlek at phila.gov for more info on giving directly to the school.
