The start of the school year can be expensive and purchasing school supplies may not fit into a family’s budget when they are struggling to provide for basic needs. Quite often, teachers will pay out of their own pockets for the supplies that students need.
RezDowntown has a long-term commitment to Wendell Phillips (now Wendell Phillips at Attucks Elementary School) and we are helping to provide these school supplies.
Pick up a bag in the Sanctuary at 1522 McGee or Connection Point at 1508 Grand starting July 23 to fill with purchased school supplies.
Don’t have time to shop? Simply donate money towards the purchase of items in bulk – $35 is all it takes to get everything a student will need for the year.
Once you fill the bag or write your check, bring them back to Connection Point by Sunday, August 7.
