NEW School Supplies (various)

Why we need this

We know that going back to school every fall can be a difficult time for homeless youth. How can we expect them to succeed in school when they don’t have a safe place to sleep, food to eat, or the supplies necessary to complete their homework? As our community gears up for the new school year, we hope you choose to support Youth On Their Own students. Your gift will have a positive impact on the lives of these vulnerable, abandoned youth who are struggling to stay in school. This year, we are striving to collect these high-demand items for all 1,600 students we anticipate to enroll by September: -- Adult-sized backpacks -- Highlighters -- Colored pencils -- Markers -- Scientific/graphing calculators -- Index cards -- Mechanical pencil -- Flash drives -- Folders -- Composition notebooks -- $10 or $25 gift cards (to grocery/clothing stores) We will be collecting items and donations from July 1st to October 1st. Items may be dropped off at our office on Alvernon Way or at a number of drop-off sites across town.
