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.
The force behind the drive are two magnanimous sisters already understanding that if you’re in the position to help then lend a helping hand. Taylor, 11 years old is the eldest of the two siblings. Her favorite hobby is drawing and her favorite subject in school is Physical Education. Although she wants to be a fashion designer when she gets older, she also expressed the dream of becoming a Doctor. “I want to be a Doctor because I want to help people get better and feel better, just like being active in my Physical Education class makes me feel .”
Trinity B, affectionately known as Trin Trin, is an energetic 5 year old who loves to be the life of the party. Many would say she’s lovable and considers everyone to be her best friend. Eager to share her toys and take you on an adventure. That eagerness bubbled over into giving and sharing with others.”
