From a press release:
“Students going back to school often look forward to the chance to pick out new school clothes and new favorite pens, notebooks, backpacks and other school supplies. However, that rush of back to school shopping is a luxury some cannot afford.
Two students with big hearts took this into consideration and sprung into action to help their community be prepared for the upcoming school year. Taylor J and Trinity B created a Back 2 School Supply Drive for children in need. People can donate packs of pens, pencils, binders, notebooks and other new to gentle used school items now through August 12th, 2017 at Starrs Second Story Boutique (3903 Georgia Ave NW). Donations will go to the Park View Elementary school. (more…)
