School Supplies Drive

Second Story serves many children in Northern Virginia in addition to teens in crisis at the Teen Shelter on Gallows Road, and they need school supplies for over 500 children in their programs. Without help from the community, the young people who participate in the Culmore Teen Center, Annandale Safe Youth Project, and Culmore Safe Youth Project as well as the Teen Shelter would go back to school without school supplies.

To help Second Story fulfill this need, please consider donating:
*Backpacks for boys, girls, teens (small, medium, and large)
*3-ring binders and dividers
*Lined paper
*Spiral notebooks and composition books
*Glue sticks, glue, and 3 x 5 cards
*Pencils, pens, and erasers
*Crayons, colored pencils, and colored markers
*Pencil holders and sharpeners
*Scissors and rulers

Monetary donations are also welcome. Please write School Supplies on the memo line, and put your check in the Sunday plate or send/give it to the church office. The drive runs through Sunday, July 28th. For more information, please contact Ginger Roll at groll@cox.net
