6th Annual Education Supplies Drive - Donate physically on 8/12 or online.

  • Aug 16, 2014 · 9:00 AM
  • UU Church of Worcester

Click here to donate to the Education Fund using PAYPAL

Imagine starting your first day of school without notebooks, without pencils and without anything to carry your supplies in. This is what we are seeking to help prevent.  Your contributions will help students start the year off right, with the right supplies to succeed!

For the last six years Greater Worcester Humanists has handed out hundreds of school supply kits to kids in need at the food pantry. Last year we again gathered over $100 from members that went towards putting together over 50 backpack kits with pens, pencils, paper, crayons, markers, and lots more.

Hopefully we can help the area residents going through a tough time in this rough economy! Help us put some smiles on some kids' faces and give them the tools they need to learn!

All contributions go directly to buying supplies for schoolkids. No funds will be left over.  Any extra supplies will be available at subsequent food pantry distributions.

If you are local to the Worcester, MA area, we always accept slightly used backpacks as they are the most expensive portion of the drive. Use the contact information on this page to get in touch with us or just write us at [masked].

If you would like to help assemble backpacks we will be meeting sometime between August 9th and 15th. I haven't ironed out the date or the place just yet. There may not be a ton of room (we had one room last year and it was warm) so I will probably limit the number of participants to 8. I will open RSVPs for this in the next week or two or you can email me at [masked]. THANKS!
