YWCA School Days runs from July 2 through August 28.
Every year, with generous donations from our supporters, YWCA provides nearly 2,000 backpacks of school supplies to every child in our programs, from kindergarteners all the way to high school seniors. This year we need your help!
To provide one or more backpacks, all you need to do is pick a grade level, purchase a brand new backpack, and fill it with school supplies. We accept both gender-specific and gender-neutral backpacks and school supplies. Most stores will have lists of recommended school supplies by grade level.
We are always short on cool teen backpacks and pink backpacks for younger children. Help arm students with the tools to learn and help them be ready to take on the year!
To donate to School Days, please email the contact at the relevant drop off location listed below, and deliver your supplies to that location on the drop off date:
East Cherry Branch
August 27, 8-6 p.m.
Somerset Village Apartments
August 15th, 9-5 p.m.
Don't delay! Most schools start in early September.
