There's still time to give items for Book Bag & School Supply Drive

The call has been sent out again this year: Back-to-school supplies are needed to help Valley students in need.

Between now and Aug. 30, book bags and school supplies are being collected around the Valley for the annual Book Bag & School Supply drive.

Jennifer Sneider, owner of J Cuts at 505 Howe Avenue, is again heading this drive. Her business will be the main drop off point for items.

Supplies may include book bags, book covers, rulers, pens, pencils, erasers, notebooks, binders, glue, crayons, calculators, pencil sharpeners, paper and folders. Supplies are collected for all school-aged children. All book bags and supplies must be  new.

Local businesses and organizations are invited and encouraged to join in by holding collections of their own.

For more information call Sneider at 203-924-4107.
