JFSGNH is collecting new school supplies for children and teens whose families use our agency services. We would like to provide for these 68 families (125+ children and teens between the ages of 4-16). Some of the items we are seeking include: new backpacks (all sizes) ; crayons (thin and the thick ones); one-subject, wide ruled notebooks; two-pocket folders; No. 2 pencils; pens; child safe scissors; colored pencils; child safe pencil sharpeners; water based markers; white glue sticks, erasers; loose-leaf notebook paper; construction paper; highlighters, etc. The JFS main office, 1440 Whalley Avenue, New Haven (2nd floor) will have a drop off box in the reception area. In addition, donations may be dropped off at the JFS Food Pantry (1st floor) on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. If you are an organization, business or school and you would like to conduct a collection to assist us, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We are hoping to distribute the items before the start of the school year. Thanks in advance for helping our kids to get ready for a great school year ahead!
