School reserve expostulate still needs rigging for 1200 Ann Arbor-area students

August 16, 2015 - School Supplies

A Washtenaw County propagandize reserve expostulate for homeless students has adequate backpacks and pens for 100 students.

There’s dual weeks left and 1,200 some-more students to help.

The Washtenaw Intermediate School District’s Education Project for Homeless Youth aims to collect adequate reserve for 1,300 students. The drive ends Aug. 28.

In a 2014-2015 propagandize year, 1,295 Washtenaw County students were homeless.

Sarah Hierman, WISD grants manager, pronounced a plan is looking for volunteers to container propagandize reserve and run two- to three-hour shifts from Monday, Aug. 17 by Friday, Aug. 28.

The plan still needs:

  • Backpacks
  • Tab dividers
  • School supply boxes/pencil cases
  • Calculators
  • Highlighters
  • Binders
  • Colored pencils
  • Scissors
  • Composition books
  • Toothbrushes (especially children’s)
  • Deodorant
  • Shampoo
  • Travel distance tissues 

The Ann Arbor News is partnering with a WISD to collect equipment for students.

Anyone meddlesome in donating can move propagandize supplies, present cards or money donations by Aug. 28, to a News during 111 N. Ashley St. in Ann Arbor or a WISD’s Teaching and Learning Center during 1819 S. Wagner Road in Ann Arbor.

Drop off hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. during The Ann Arbor News and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. during a WISD.
