Backpack of school supplies for homeless children

Hi selfless volunteers! One of our very best volunteers Ron Crockett is active with a group called Fun Zone Reading Club for Homeless Kids. We would like to provide 50 backpacks full of school supplies for the kids of skid row. Please let me know what you could contribute:
-backpack (kids size)
-lined paper
-pens and pencils
-crayons
-colored markers
-erasers
Anything else you could think of? If you are a teacher, please make your suggestions!
Collection date will be September 11th (if you don't know the history of meetup, the organization, it was created through the 9/11 tragedy as a means to get communities to draw close to one another rather stand apart in terror).
Please contact Ron if you need further details:[masked] cell. Please call Ron first before dropping off donation.

    30 backpacks donated in total. Thank you everyone!
    I was so inspired by how many people came from far and wide (and around the corner) just to make a donation.
    A date we remember for senseless killing is now a day that I'll remember for wonderful acts of kindness.

    I'd add pocket folders to the list. Otherwise, the list looks good. I have 3 backpacks with all of the above. What do you all think about making a time of it vs just dropping off? maybe set up some chairs on main and have popcorn :-)

    Hi Molly, my friend Carrie runs a meetup group for DTLA residents called DTLA Rendezvous. I invited her to attend the event. Are you ok with us cross-posting this event on DTLA Rendezvous? I figured the more donations, the merrier but wanted to check first -

      Yes definitely send me the information!

    Hi Ron,
    I would like to participate. Can you please clarify "kids" for me? There are toddler and young kids backpacks. I'm not sure which would be more appropriate.
    Thank you
