A school supply drive aimed at helping local children for the upcoming school year has recently begun, with Sunnyside Community Services asking the community to pitch in.
The community services group is collecting new supplies ranging from pens, pencils, backpacks, binders, crayons, and more for students in the Woodside Houses and the Boulevard Family Residence.
“The cost of basic school supplies can be more than some families can afford every year,” said Sheena Sukhraj, SCS’ assistant executive director of youth and family services. “We can help children have a better school experience by making sure they have the tools they need to succeed.”
