The back to school sales have begun, and it’s time for the 2019 Mobile Loaves & Fishes School Supply Drive! We will be collecting school supplies the weekends of July 27-28 and August 3-4. Please drop off new school supplies in the donation boxes placed around the gathering space. With a goal of providing 150 basic school kits, these supplies will be handed out to the children we serve on our meal delivery stops.
If you are employed with a company (or perhaps own a company with several employees) and are looking for a way to give back to the community, please consider holding a companywide drive and then bring the school supplies to MLF. This is a wonderful company outreach initiative that will touch many lives.
A basic back to school kit includes a backpack, crayons, colored pencils, erasers, folders, glue sticks, markers, notebooks, pencils, rulers, and scissors. A “Sorting Party” to bag the items for distribution will be held on August 10-11 in a location to be determined. If you are interested in helping, please contact Lynne Cruz via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate the love that your donations show for these children.
